    On-board-air

    How many of you are running an on-board-air system?
    What equipment are you using (compressor, air tank, etc.)? Pics would be nice if possible.
    Thanks

    I run the ARB dual compressor and a 2.5gallon Viair tank for a reservoir. Great system, compressor pushes a lot of air, more than most OBA compressors. Fast air-up's and could run air tools if I needed to plus plenty of air locker actuations with the tank's volume so the compressor doesnt have to run too much.
    I also have a 10lb CO2 setup for portable air supply and for seating beads back on tires. It doesnt come with me all the time, usually bounces around my other rigs that dont have an OBA compressor.

    I had a york compressor on my JK, if you kicked the idle up to 1200 I could actually fill my air tank up faster than my valve stems would allow air into the tires. I could fill up 40" tires from 8psi to 30 in a couple minutes once I put the powertank monster valves on the wheels. It would be hard for me to go electric after having that kind of air.

    If you donít want to wait for air ever, go with a York driven off your engine. If you can stand to wait, a viair, or arb if you are willing to spend that much, will be simple to install and get the job done. If you have bumpers or sliders made from heavy tubing, you can use those as an air tank, or a cheap 5 gallon air tank from harbor freight works good too.
    I donít have any pictures that I can find, but I run a viair 380c compressor with a harbor freight 5 gallon air tank mounter under the floor, I can air four 37ís from 5psi to 25 in 15-20 minutes, and teed with my buddyís electric compressor we can run air tools

    X2 for monster valves. Makes air down, up so much faster. Standard valves are obsolete.

    Yorks the way to go if you can make it happen.

    The big ARB compressor is decent. I have a Puma 12v compressor it's 100% duty cycle. Had it a long time, works good.

    There are cheaper options but you wont be happy if you're regularly filling tires. And if you run air tools you want at least a decent electric and a tank.

    Is Pick and Pull a good source for Yorks?

    Contributing to the 'buyer beware' and/or 'what NOT to do' list:

    Portable air from harbor freight similar to ~

    ~ seizes / duty cycles before getting all (4) Q78 tires from 7 back to 30.
    I am told the cause is an inferior thermal switch (easy fix that I have never gotten around to)
