07-14 Wrangler ARB CKMA12 Compressor Mount
If you have been looking for a nice, clean way to mount your ARB CKMA12 compressor under the hood of your 07-14 Wrangler then here is a great solution. The CKMA12 is the most common compressor for air actuated lockers. We started making these several years ago because there was no aftermarket solution. We have used them on 2 door JK's and 4 door JK's and we have used them on both the 3.8 and the 3.6 engines. The bracket is designed to use existing factory hardware which makes for a simple and clean installation. We make the compressor mount out of aluminum only because it is not supporting a lot of weight and it just looks a lot nicer when finished. If you would like a one off steel mount we can make that happen but you will have to click here to contact us directly.
So this fits any JK with a factory motor from 2007-2014?
Yep, we believe in simple and effective designs. Because we own and work on our Jeeps ourselves we understand that a bag of bolts and a 48 page instruction pamphlet can be quite discouraging.
Why mount my compressor under the hood?
It's simple, if you have driven jeeps over the years and own a new jeep now you realize just how refined newer wranglers are. The soft tops have been redesigned to be dead quiet, the sound systems are the best that have ever come in a jeep and the interiors in 2011 and up jeeps are just nice. Since you are likely driving your jeep every day the last thing you want to hear is the compressor kick on. It's not that the noise is so loud that it is unbearable, it's just really annoying in an otherwise comfortable vehicle.
But wont the engine heat destroy the pump?
During normal locker use the pump doesn't run continuously. The pump will run continuously when you are airing up tires but if you open the hood to access the air chuck the engine bay will not be holding any heat. We have not seen heat destroy an ARB pump mounted on one of our brackets since we have been installing them over the last 4 years.
