wiring rubicon compressors

just got a TJ that has had a set of Rubicon axles swap in. Previous owner hard wired the stock compressors the two simple switches. There is one positive and one negative going to each compressor. the other two wires on the compressor don't go anywhere. They work fine....problem is that the positive wires seem to get hot.

Is there supposed to be a pressure switch that cuts the compressor on and off but maintains the pressure so that pump doesn't run constant. Hope that makes since.

New to the whole jeep thing...thanks for the help.

i installed a rubicon axle for someone. i ran power and ground like you say, when the locker is full of air, the pump shut off. make sure you dont have a leak in the system, allowing air to leak, and make the pump stay running. there is a hose inside the diff, where the supply hose goes through the housing, i've found that the hose doesnt fit real good, so i put zip ties around them to make a better seal
