These are always my favorite threads.

IPF E Code housings, IPF 100w bulbs, IPF plug and play wiring harness. 12 pack of beer.


That was easy.

Well this is the medium duty system. Viair 10003 - Viair Medium Duty Onboard Air System - Quadratec

They go up from there. I think ARB might have a system as well. I've been looking at this system for awhile but haven't done extensive background on it yet. Looks like a good kit though.

Jesus dude. What does your jeep need? If you could settle down the list that would really help us out.

ok wanting on board air under $300. best i can get for that. either electric or i read about a belt driven york or something like that. whatever would be the most powerful for the money. something that runs air tools would be nice too.

You get a ton of refills in a power-tank.

Although, I would suggest building one out of a 10lb C02 tank commonly used in kegarators, by putting a high flow valve, and nice regulator. You could make two for the price of a power tank, maybe 3. You wouldnt need to refill them all for a month. And then have more pressure output for airtools than many compressors!

Hmmm... yeah that would be a hassle. The only air system I have found so far that is under $300 is that Viair on-board system. The ones that run off of a belt on your engine are pricey. They scare me away, but if you wanted something heavy duty, you're most likely going to have to go beyond $300.

If you put the money in a short term high interest CD, you could see an increase in revenue.... oh, hell with that! Get the compressor!

so this may be a dumb idea but my buddy bought a trucker air horn and with it came the compressor and an air hose. he paid like 125 for the whole thing and it takes up no room in under his hood. probably doesnt hold as much air as you'd like but might be a cheep option and you get an air horn out of it.

Well, since the Jeep has everything any Jeep could possibly want..... I suggest a nice set of Dirty Mudder seat covers..... They make every Jeep happier!
