ARB Twin High Performance 12 Volt Portable Air Compressor (CKMTP12)

Anyone use this compressor ARB Twin High Performance 12 Volt Portable Air Compressor (CKMTP12)?

Its $800, but I like the idea it can run pneumatic tools also... I don't have any air tools (yet), but I'm thinking this could serve double duty - in the garage and on the trail...

I know ARB makes quality stuff, but if anyone has any ideas I'm all ears...

That is a BUTTLOAD of $$$$ for a machine that only does 6CFM......IMHO.

You should check any air tool you would want to use for its CFM requirements.

Could buy 30 of these and throw them away when they broke.....

I already have a Husky Brand 120v inflator (Husky, 120-Volt Inflator, HY120 at The Home Depot - Mobile) And I have a 120v outlet in my RAM. It just takes FOREVER to fill just one 33" tire from 15 back up. I keep it on the off chance I have to patch and inflate on the go.

I'm looking at building up a tool collection, got wrenches, sockets, etc... But I'd like a pneumatic impact wrench / driver. So is there such a thing as a compressor/tank portable enough to tote in a 2dr JK without taking up a ton of room, and strong enough to run air tools, BUT isn't a zillion dollars?

I found what I'm looking for, but its a zillion bucks. I'm hoping someone will have a less expensive idea or option.
