00' Ford Explorer EB
Hey guys, i picked up my 2000 EB bout a month ago and going to start building slowely. I recently picked up a 3 gallon hotdog like compressor from a buddy for very cheap just something to fill tires and light air tools if needed. I am thinking bout mounting it somewhere in the back cargo area, my question is if i drill through the floor and just bolt it down will the metal be too thin or should i throw a plate on the under side and bolt it down through the plate and the floor?

Also, since this will put a load on my battery would it be a good idea to upgrade to an alternator with higher amperage?

I would just bolt it down, then get a bigger battery and high output alt.
