On my CJ7, I mouned the 2-1/2 gal tank crossways under the body, just aft of where the front seat area rises up a few inches to the rear cargo area floor. Fits in there nicely. Ran the supply hose up the passenger side frame rail to the York compressor in the engine compartment, and ran the outlet hose back on the rear driver frame rail to a quick disconnect on the back of the body.
