ARB Compressor with PowerTrays - Installation

The ARB single compressor install has been documented several times here but I havenít been able to find much using PowerTrays, so here goes.

2020 ORP here. I chose to install the compressor on the drivers side of the engine bay. There are other options for location but I made the decision on location first and then started researching mounting options.

The big change over prior year 5th gens is the additional fuse/relay box behind the main fuse/relay box. Slee sells a relocation bracket but itís not necessary. You can repurpose the existing bracket and relocate it. No cutting or drilling required. PowerTrays has those instructions on their website.

I also went with an AOB switch mounted in place of a blank in the dash. Iíll skip the details on wiring because you can search for at least several detailed write ups on that. Letís skip to the pics.



Package arrived via USPS within two weeks, even though their website said it was sold out and would take 3-4 weeks. It was well packaged.



Supporting arm glued to the instructions along with installation hardware.



Compressor bolted up.



One of the deciding factors for me on PowerTrays was the clean and precise cuts and ability to relocate the quick coupler. The relocation kit is pictured here. Using this kit I can tuck away the wires, pressure switch, and tee connector for a cleaner final installation.



Note the relocated fuse/relays box in the back. It does make accessing the firewall wiring tricky but itís easy enough to remove. I ran my switch wires through the firewall before bolting in the relocated fuse box and before bolting in the PowerTrays.



Definitely use the recommended 10 inch ratchet extension bar with a universal joint to make tightening the bolts easier. Space is tight back there!



There are two bolts that run through the fender here to attach the support arm. Just above and to the right of the suspension components. It helps to jack up the front driver side to get some extra room to work. I did not remove my wheel but that might give you a more comfortable working area.



I also picked up a Blue Seas bus bar to clean up my wiring. Eventually I plan to add the SwitchPros but today I am filling up my dash with AOB switches as needed. I still have one open switch position, then Iíll upgrade to SwitchPros and this tray allows me that flexibility as my build grows.



Overall Iím super pleased with the result and would buy PowerTrays again. Customer service and quality is A+!

Is that the PowerTray model that holds the SwitchPros 9100 in the vertical position or maybe could hold it in the vertical position?

I believe PowerTrays redesigned this to mount the SwitchPros in the vertical position (as shown on the homepage of powertrays.com) per SwitchPros warranty. Water intrusion has been an issue when mounted horizontally. The webpage shows the new (first image) and old style (second image) ARB / Switch-Pro PowerTray - 4RUNNER/ FJ CRUISER/ GX – PowerTrays

I would love to know how you wired the AOB switch especially because the wiring on the 20+ MY is different. Iím pretty confident in lighting/dimming but the other wires are still a mystery too me.

This forum has several results if you search for ARB AOB switch. I actually ran into a unique problem so Iíll clarify that.



Top: AOB wires
Bottom: ARB isolation switch wires
*Note: after install the light on the switch stayed illuminated regardless of switch position. I flipped the AOB green and red wires and that eliminated the problem. Pro tip: attach spade wire connectors to the end of your AOB switch wires.

AOB -> ARB
Red -> Red/Ylw
Green -> Red
Blue -> Blue/Wht
Black -> Black

I did not connect the second black wire on the ARB side.

I taped off the connectors for switch 1 and switch 2, as well as the corresponding connectors near the compressor.

I did not care for the dimmer connection, so I taped off the ARB blue/white wire as well. I connected the ARB red/yellow wire to the ACC slot in the interior fuse box using an add-a-fuse and a 15 amp fuse, then just zip tied up the excess wire and tucked it out of the way.
