Where should I mount my air bag gauge

I bought Air Lift Load Lifter 5000 air bags last week and an Air Lift Air Compressor System last week. It comes with the single gauge noted below. I would like to know where others have mounted the gauge. Can it be mounted on the dash and removed when not needed like a GPS? What other ways have you mounted it. Thanks! Any pics?

Mine is not that big, but I mounted it below the dash.

The gauge is 2 inches and mounted to a bracket called a pod. You can mount it on the bottom of the gauge for top of dash mounting, on the bottom of the gauge for under dash mounting and there is a bracket that allows you to cut a hole in the dash and flush mount it. I'd like to see what others have done. Decisions, decisions!!!???

Bummer, I was kind of looking for a smaller one or digital.
A couple I have looked at are right around a $100.00.

Did you consider the Airlift Wireless One compressor? It has a digital display fob to set your pressure. I've thought about mounting it but just keep it in the console for when I need it. The controller maintains the pressure so there isn't much need to monitor it.

Air bags and compressor installed

Had my Air Lift 5000 air bags and compressor installed today. Gauge fit real nice under my dash and does not interfere with the legs at all. The compressor mounted great next to the battery. Camping World fabricated a nice bracket to mount it on and even painted it black so it would blend in with the rest of the stuff under the hood. Will try it out for the first time next week. WooHoo!!

I considered this issue when I got my airlifts. Went ahead and got the wireless remote. Really glad I did. Adjust pressure on the fly and no problem storing it.
