    So here’s my dilemma. I am ordering the arb Dual and can’t find anything but the slee mount for a dual air compressor mount on drive side. The issue is Toyota in their infinite wisdom added a larger than normal relay box and a bunch of wiring connectors on the driver side. Where most everyone mounts their compressors. I can’t do passenger fire wall because my dual battery setup is there. So what are my options for those that have done it. I don’t want the wifey kit from rago because they don’t offer install instructions for the 2020+ And basically the message on FB I got from them was you need to move some things. And that was it.

    So anyone got any other options they know of ?

    I’ve seen people mount it in the rear where either the bottle jack goes or the little cubby area on the passenger side.

    Been overlanding for over a decade, with lots of different people and rigs. I still don't "get" on-board air. I just keep my Viair in a bag, and hook it up to the battery when I need to air up.

    All that said (since it was unhelpful), I'd definitely mount one in the vehicle cabin, if I could. Underhood stuff takes a lot of abuse due to dust, moisture, and heat cycling.

    Google ARB compressor mounts for gen 5 4Runner. I've came across a few companies that make a mount for passenger side firewall. Lots of room there. Just can't remember the names of them. I'm old.

    I just put the Slee bracket in with the 2020 fuse box relocate. The slee mount is well built and the relocation bracket should allow you to put in any 5th gen driver side mount as it moves the fuse box closer to the firewall and frees up the mounting holes most other brackets use.

    I may be moving the compressor to the passenger side via Shrockworks dual battery smog pump relocate bracket + bandi arb compressor mount. and using the slee mount an spod to the driver side.

    Thanks. I fixed it. But yes I can’t do passenger because my battery is there with the red arc. Well it will be today lol. Going to a buddy’s to borrower his router to cut the battery cover out today. Using a 1/2” piece of hdpe

    Rago makes a very nice aluminum mount for driver's side that works with a minor tweak. Instructions here.

    (I've got one for sale for $40 if anyone is interested - I moved my compressor to the other side to make room for a Switch Pros.)

    Yeah + shipping. I'm not using it anymore so may as well go to someone that will use it. It's really well done - light and no rust and great fit.

    There are 5 bolts. I only have 2 (re-used the other 3) so you would need to make a trip to the h/w store for that or get them from Rago - they are really good about sending you their h/w for a few bucks.

    I was trying to sell it locally to avoid a trip to UPS, but if there's someone that wants it, I can go on a weekend.
