Air?

Hey all, Im looking into getting an on-board air system that can run power tools as well as my ARBs. Anyone got any experience or suggestions?

well to run air tools youll need a decent size tank. go with a viair compressor, something like a 380 or 480-- they are fast. you can throw anything at em and they keep on running. and they got a good water resistant filter compared to most compressors.

im new to jeeps so i dont know what a arb is but check out suicidedoors.com -- it is a minitruck site but has great prices and you can build your own kit easy.

Kilby york setup, or you can scrounge the parts from a junkyard yourself and have all the air you'll ever need
