Compressor 4 Air lockers.

So I am running front and rear ARB lockers. Need me a compressor to run them. Wondering if I should just get one of the ARB compressors and then do something different to air my tires back up via CO2 or a OBA or just get the OBA and run my lockers off of that?

I run the ARB Twin Compressor, I pump my tires up pretty quick (35in tires). I do not use tools at all but I pump um the occasional air matress. My old pump went out recently and I switched to this. It is kinda expensive 400-500 depending on the deal you get. I havent used it too much, it gets kinda warm (not like my old one did) when doing my tires. I have it mounted in the engine bay. I have seen people use the high output for tires, it does take a little longer (2-5 min) for tires but it works. I am not sure of the life expectancy of the compressors for filling but they do work.

If I was in your position I would run an OBA setup with an extension to the air manifold for the lockers.
Like this link.

Stock AC to OBA conversion

Thank you Saint. That was what I was looking to go with. Cowboy, I have not totally ruled out having AC on my jeep so I am going to keep it functional for now but thank you for the link

How large is the twin compressor? Mine will be here Monday and I am wondering where the best place to mount it would be. I am running metalcloaks and was thinking if possible mount it on the inner fender.

do you have any pictures on the compressor install? I have mine mounted on the driver side rear wheel hump inside the cab. Not really happy with that location. Thanks

Do not waste your money on ARB Compressors.

What you want is a Viair kit. I chose part # 27000. 2 gallon tank with 380c compressor that will run 100% duty cycle @55psi.

A little late but figured I would post up an option. The VIAIR ADA is a good choice, since it has the small reservoir and uses a 400C compressor. The 400C is large enough to fill 35's and even low pressure 37's. The ADA has the right pressure for the lockers, so you just have to plumb the solenoids right in, and you are ready to go.

VIAIR ADA Heavy Duty Universal 40049 - Onboard-Air.com

Thats a legit kit there!

I gave the wrong part number earlier. It is 20007 not 27000. That is for a 380C with a 2 gallon tank. But you have to buy all the extra goodies that AIRWerks has pictured separately.

Really late reply... I have it mounted by the brake booster brown in that little cubby space. I had my old one there too but this new one is bigger and a lot tighter fit but it worked.

We have a new mounting bracket we are working on that will mount a 400C to the TJ's under the booster there. It will also be part of an OBA system or can be used for just a compressor.

Still have some work and test fittings to do, but should be ready in the next few months.

Will this new bracket also fit the YJ? I don't like mine mounted to the wheel hump, it's in the kids way and it gets hot and am worried that they could burn themselves.

If that location under the booster is the same as the TJ, it will. I would imagine they would be very similar, but I have not checked to confirm. I will try and locate a YJ to find this out for you.

here is where my ARB is mounted:


However I don't think this one has enough power to pump up tires. I would love to be able to pump up my tires but i think the larger pump wouldn't fit in the same spot.

I just put in ARB lockers and used their new twin compressor. It works great! I mounted it on the fender where the jack used to be mounted.

Thank you, but that won't work for me (5.7L swap). I like the idea if hanging it off the booster and was wondering if the TJ one is the same as for a YJ

Man that compressor looks sweet and awesome placement!! If my old compressor bites the dust I will definitely spring for the twin compressor. Do you have measurements/drawings on the metal plate and heat shield that you mocked up for it?

I don't have dimensions on the shield. I just made it a little bigger than the compressor. The old jack location has some mounting points, just make sure you cover those and use them to secure it. I had to build a couple of brackets and attach those underneath and to the fender well. My write up has some good pics.
