Is there enough room under the hood on the 2.7 for dual batteries and/or an ARB compressor?
Thanks

From what I've seen I'd say you'd at least have room for the compressor. That was the location I was planning on going with, so when I checked it out in person I was looking through that lens

Thanks. I do have a heavy duty NOCO GB150 that I could carry inside if a second battery won't fit.

there are photos of a compressor mounted here somewhere, but I don't remember which engine it was. Pretty sure it'll fit, I think it was on the passenger side close to the window. Dual battery might be a bit trickier to do.

There is not much available real estate under the hood. I think you should be able to do the compressor. A second battery is going to take some creative relocating of existing components.

For sure an ARB compressor, ARB had a dual compressor installed in their demo Bronco. Although, I am not 100% sure if that was the 2.3 or 2.7.
