    Mine is in the box left side where the hole is below the tie down ring, although I like the idea beside the licence plate.

    Per Timber Grove's no drill, no cut "policy," I mounted mine the same as 8=====D, in the bed. However, having to drop the tail gate every time is a hassle and would be an even bigger hassle if the bed was full of stuff. So if I were to do it again, I'd drill a hole near the license plate.

    On my long gone 1500, I had the valves located right of the licence plate. Drilled through the plastic to mount them. Both valves were side by side as I had each bag on a separate line.

    As for access, well I have the rubber drain hose from my tonneau right there making things difficult. Yet even with the tailgate up, and a quad loaded last weekend, I was able to reach it from the top and screw on the air hose pictured. Not the easiest way of filling, but definitely the cheapest and simplest for me for right now. Harbor Freight air pump (I got for free as it was thrown away from an old work project) and a Pollak 7 prong adapter to just plug it into the hitch when I need it.

    I have separate lines for each side. I mounted the valves in the upper licence plate holes. It makes it look like I doubled up the mounting bolts for the plate until you look closer and see they are valves.
