CO2 air bottles

Who has the hookup? I don't want to take the one out of my 2 tap kegerator when I go out. Got to have priorities.
After reading about on board air (where I was leaning) and the quickness of airing up my 35's with CO2, I think that may be the way to go. Going to go with OX lockers so the on board air isn't looking so hot to me right now other than the cost for a cheapy.

I put my C02 tank together from parts on the Internet for under $150. I spent around $80 for a 10 lb. aluminum C02 tank, $50 or so for the regulator, and the balance towards a quick connect & misc. Make sure the tank you get is aluminum, some tanks you'll find are steel & much heavier.

Here's a google search showing lots of the right kind of tank... https://www.google.com/search?q=10+l....1.LIQoVxvZjk4

My regulator looks like this...

which is sold at The Original SOURCE HyperFLO Fixed Regulator. I didn't buy mine from them, I just ended up with one that looked like theirs after rounding up the parts to make my own.

The rest of it is just putting together an air hose with the right fittings on both ends. All in all, it's an easy project.

What about brackets? How did you guys mount yours?

I am getting a CO2 soon and was thinking of ordering this: OffRoadAir CO2 Air Systems from Wheeler's Off-Road

But if I can save close to $100 I'll build my own.

I got a 10#Powertank with all the goodies for 400 and I can fill my 35's in about 5 minutes. I love the speed but not the room it takes up in the back.
