Jeep JK Engine Bay Compressor Install Video
This is the simplest way to install a compressor in your JK. It uses a compressor with an integrated switch, so the switch and hose connection are located inside the JK Engine Compartment. This video shows a typical 2007 - 2011 install. The 2012+ install is a bit more involved, but still offers a simple OBA solution. These kits are also available with in-cab switch and front bumper air source.
