This is a question for all of you with Fords. I'm going to be putting Airlift Airbags and the wireless compressor on my 2012 F350 shortly (when the weather gets warmer. 38 degrees, drizzling and cold is NOT conducive to truck upgrades in the driveway).

For those of you that have an on-board compressor, where did you mount it ? I don't want to mount it in the cab, and I'm not real keen on drilling into a crossmember or frame to mount it underneath. I'm considering mounting the compressor and manifold on the bed side wall on the driver's side. Curious to knwo where the rest of you put it.

Thanks for the info !!

Vaughan, on my truck it's under the cab near the driver's side door on the angled metal. Make sure you wire it so it's on the ignition side of the battery. I have up-fitter switches in my truck and we used the one that's nearest the driver (they all have different amp ratings). That way if I start the truck in the late hours or early mornings I can flip the switch and keep things quiet for my fellow campers. For the life of me, we can't seem to find the air leaks so the compressor fires up on start-ups.
