Viair mounting location idea

Hi everyone. I just got my air shock kit. I've been reading threads about mounting location. Why doesn't anyone mount the compressor under the engine. It fits perfectly between the engine and trans with the head on the left side pointing toward the rear, without hanging down. The hose can run up next to the shift rod between the engine case and inner primary case. Your thoughts?

IMO there's pretty good chances of picking up debris under the engine. If you don't have ABS you can mount it under the right side cover. All I had to do was trim a piece of the empty plastic box where the ABS module would be and it fits perfectly.

Its an Ultra. It actually will tuck up between the engine and trans nice, shielded by the pans with room around it for air to circulate.

Hey if it fits i say go for it. Just make sure the air lines aren't near anything too hot

Dirtyair had some really nice mounting brackets, this is the one i used on the rear strut bar..it can go towards the front also I'd you don't have extended bags to hide it.

Mines mounted like smokeyjoes it wasn't easy to get it in there but that's where arrnott suggested to put it. I took out the air temp gauge and mounted my air pressure gauge in the dash and it looks stock
