Which compressor did you get? I've been looking at them and can't decide which one to get. I promised myself to have air tools before doing another lift and I'm at that point. Thanks

Haha! Yeah the tool dept. at sears and my credit card have a thing for each other!
The one I was looking at was 150psi. Let me know how you like yours if you don't mind. Best of luck with the install!
