It has been common for years to air down prior to hitting the trail. This is all fine and good when you are carrying air in order to fill back up for the drive home. On-board air is not a new phenomenon but there are companies out there that are continuing to innovate. Expedition Essentials is one of those companies.
Expedition Essentials has developed a Toyota Tacoma bedside compressor mount which is designed to mount an ARB single or dual compressor (also fits Viair and Smittybilt compressors) in a clean and minimal way.
It is no surprise that the makers of the innovative Tacoma Accessory Mount (T3PAM & T2PAM) have came up with another well-thought out product. The single or dual ARB compressor mount (also fits Viair and Smittybilt compressors) is a great solution for those that are not looking to mount the compressor under the hood. Mounting a compressor under the hood can increase the operating temperature and also can be difficult to access.
The Expedition Essentials Tacoma Bedside Compressor Mount is constructed out of 5052 .125 aluminum and powder coated. The aluminum construction offers superior corrosion resistance to ensure this mount is safe in all types of environments.
While this compressor mount is a great product out of the box, Expedition Essentials has also developed some additional products that can be used in conjunction with the mount. Those include a bedside compressor mount extension harness and BCM power outlet adapter.
As we mentioned this product will work with 2007+ Toyota Tacomas and can be mounted on either the driver or passenger side of the bed. There are a couple of notes regarding fitment to be aware of:
- For 2019 models the BCM will require mounting on the passenger side and simple relocation of the factory power outlet (Expedition Essentials now has outlet adapters to make this possible)
- Installation in the rear of your truck will require extension of the harness that comes with your compressor: most compressors only offer a 6’ harness (currently Expedition Essentials offers an extension harness only for the ARB twin compressor) you will need to extend your harness 15'
On-board air is a great thing. What is even better is the ability to mount your compressor in a concealed way that doesn’t take up a lot of room. Those are the exact reasons why we are huge fans of the Expedition Essentials bedside compressor mount. If you happen to drive a 2007+ Toyota Tacoma and either have a compressor or are looking to purchase a compressor look no further than the Expedition Essentials Bedside Compressor Mount to safely and securely mount your compressor.
