Air tank location ??

For those running air tanks, where would be the best location to mount it? Would an airtank be cost effective just to air tires up? Thanks......

Creator, everything we do leaves a track. May our tracks be ones we would want you to see and others to follow......

Re: Air tank location ??

<font color=blue> A power tank or just a regular air tank? A regular air tank would not be enough to air up one tire all the way from zero, much less 4 tires from 10 to 20. A power tank on the other hand definately would be beneficial, but worth the money? I don't know, depends on how deep your pockets are. I made my own ugly front bumper that doubles as an air tank. Holds enough air on the trails and I keep my 10 gallon tank at camp to use when I am filling up multiple tires and air mattress's and such. I have on board air by the way. Cause the front bumper holds enough air to fill a basketball if I wasn't putting more air into it.

On a little different note check out this site and click on cheap tire inflator. An old idea but I think it is a good one.http://hsp.rockcrawler.com/. Jim

Re: Air tank location ??

Depends on the size of the tank. For awhile, I had a 6" cylindrical tank which I mounted up pretty much adjacent to the rear driveshaft. Worked well and I was able to get it tucked up pretty tight.

I've since gone to using our roll cages and/or bumper depending on the vehicle.

I think placement is dictated by your tank size though, engine compartment, behind the driver's seat, over a rear fenderwell, attached to the tailgate, underneath, there's lot of places....
