    Just depends on where you want to mount it. It's a bit large to mount under the jeep, but small if you have room to mount it in the pass. compartment.

    Any place that sells air compressors will have the pressure cutoff switch. For air tanks weld up a tube bumper that's airtight, weld in a couple 1/4" pipe couplings and you have your air tank. use one front and rear you will have dual tanks

    The the that shuts the compressor down is the pressure switch. If you are installing a Firestone one they normally come with them. Adel clamps work very well for holding the lines down they will not rub through the plastic lines.
