I installed an on board air system in the Camo Beast. After toying around with where to mount it and the tank, I finally decided that I had plenty of room inside my tool box. The system consists of twin Viair compressors. I got the Dual 400C pack. It is rated 33% duty cycle and puts out 4.55cfm at 0psi. In the 90psi range it puts out 2.65cfm. I figured this would be ample considering the main purpose is to inflate tires. So I mounted the compressors and the tank to a piece of 3/4" OAK plywood and ran the necessary wires to the tool box. It works like a champ.
The Flex hose can reach all four tires.
It takes about a couple of minutes to take these 37 from 20# to 35#

I really like this setup. It is very clean and shows the time and thought into it. I really almost went this route. My only hangup was I couldn't get a box that would fit right while retaining my Thule Racks. I'm still attached to them for use of the Cargo Pod and Bike Mounts. Anyone that has and uses a bed toolbox, I highly recommend this type of install when considering OBA. Good job on it OP.
I have to say I chuckled a bit on the first picture when noticing the step chair at the tailgate. It is the exact same one I use...!!! hahahahah

IIRC, there's a thread in 2nd Gen Off Topic where someone built an On Board Air setup with the tank located underneath the bed, but tucked up and also protected with a thick plate.
Rolling coal is like spending a considerable amount of money to reconfigure your plumbing system so that when you shat in the toilet, it gets sprayed all over your furniture because someone suggested you should use a better-performing furniture polish.
Thanks! the Yorks are definitely one of the best ways to go. After I lifted the truck a step ladder became an absolute must. Its funny, like you siad before, our trucks are the same. Mine is exactly yours twin, that is before the camo. When I got the white 04-Diesel, I couldn't have two white trucks and thats when it got the first camo job.
