On board air

What is everyone using for their on board air for airing up after off roading? I was talking with someone that mentioned a Co2 bottle, maybe if that sounds right.

I like the idea of just having a bottle on board but I suppose an air compressor is not out of the question either.

You can use the C0˛ bottle, if you don't miind paying all the time for refills !!

ARB maks a couple neat compressors, so does VAIR

I've got the ARB CKM A12HPAC and it's supplied with a bracket to place the compressor between the eng. and brake master cyl.



It was one of the first ops I put in in '08, I also have a Q89 dual, I keep in my trailer

Check these guys out: ::Kilby Enterprises::

As far as constant high-volume air sources go, nothing beats a York belt-driven compressor (or so I have been told, this is on my future-mods list). Those other electric compressors usually have to cool down after 20 mins or so, and if you are reinflating from 10-15 psi to 28-35 psi on a 33 inch tire, figure at least that to fill all four up. 35 inch and higher will take much longer. The Kilby system can dramatically decrease the air up time and allow constant high volume air for running all sorts of air tools. I know some of the Viair systems advertise this, but I think you will find something to be desired after a few fill ups on an electric system.

^ is your ARB a 12V.? If so that is awesome, I was thinking of just lugging around my 110 V. AC compressor but it would be overkill and a waste of space.

I use a a/c compressor off of a cherokee. $40 at pick and pull, made a air manifold, and wired up a pressure switch, couple other things to make it all work. total cost was maybe $150. no need to cary a lug wrench, I keep a impact gun in back to change tires.

I've been trying to get a SCBA tank from a cpl firemen friends....I can get it filled for free, and it'd be less complicated than a compressor. But so far I don't have it, so I may go the Vlair route (adding a belt driven compressor is more work than its worth for my Jeep)

I'm in no real hurry for it...so I'm giving them time to come through. (they d/c their old tanks all the time).
