I store my Viair in the Under hood storage box, fits perfectly along with the other emergency gear.

I installed mine about 400 miles ago, and loaded it up with a pair of heavy shackles, a tree saver, and a 20' strap; there's still decent room to spare for other stuff. I didn't bother with the foam because it is a really bad joke . . . like a hooker with a penis level of bad. There was surprisingly little dust inside despite the lack of foam, much less than my storage stuff in the back. While bashing through the Utah desert, I have not noticed any cooling issues, the gauge stays in the middle. I wouldn't expect any cooling issues with a 7-8" air gap between the trunk and the radiator. Concerning the hoped for effect of minimizing hot air entry into the cab, there doesn't appear to be any reduction in that, seems hot air mostly enters through the shifter hole. The trunk appears sturdy, it's holding the cargo without any rattles, and no noticeable wear or cracking.

Yes, it's expensive, but what add-on isn't overpriced for SxSs? This one appears to work, at least, and ensures I always have recovery equipment handy.

If you could fit the Milwaukee 18v tire inflator somewhere. That's my choice. You can set a bead with it.
I third this choice
Yeah baby! Yeah! Oh behave!!!!

Not gonna lie, it’s been on my shopping list for a while. If you’re already on the battery platform this is a great option. I’m trying to convince myself the convenience of not wrapping up wires is worth replacing a perfectly good Viair I have.

The thing abot a Viair, if the buggy will start, you have power. It will be my luck that when I need to use my 20v DeWalt compressor, the battery will be dead.

I was able to pump this low tire up to 80 lbs. (loose TPMS valve stem sender) -
