They looks pretty much the same to me. For the price of a viair 400c you can buy 4.6 MV50s. Is it 4.6x better?
here are links from that thread.

I use a Sandon - just like the one used on a TJ for air conditioning. Stop into most any repair shop - they'll give you one that they took off because it had a small leak. A small leak won't stop you from using it for on board air. FREE!
It's small and round, fits nicely. Not big and cumbersome like a York.

The most expensive part is a pressure switch - Kilby has them for about $10. You also need a check valve - Grainger.
Fab a bracket, get a longer belt - no tank needed - it puts out 8-10 CFM at 100 lbs.
It'll fill a 35x12.5 in about 1.5 minutes.
It will run an air tool without a tank, but I've never found it's needed on a trail. Better to use that room for a welder.

Pics available if you need them.

No wonder you so easily buy into all the bling stuff if you think they look the same. I like it how you left out the comments where he mentions the lower quality of the MV50 and that it is even failing now. Smittybilt's junk is a prime example of getting what you pay for. Keep on pushing that Smittybilt junk.

Smittybuilt USED TO BE good quality stuff, roll protection, tops, seats - lots of goodies. Old man Smitty was always very helpful and honest! But about 10-12 years ago old man Smitty died. The company stopped selling anything for awhile.

Then somebody bought up the inventory and name for a song, they sold all the good stuff, since then most of it is junk from China.

The name should be changed from Smitty built - it's an insult to the old man - it really should be renamed to Shittybuilt.
