Scout Keep in mind that ARB makes a portable air compressor. That's actually what I've been using. I think it cost me about $ 250.00.

It's 33% duty cycle. It takes me about 20 minutes to air back up, but that's better than nothing!

Hank I think for my price range the one that Tdad recommends would be the best for me. I can't wait to get one. I'm only going to be using it to air up after I air down. I'm not even sure how often I'll be doing that. Thanks for all the info.

MR.CLIFFORD Get one of these

Tdad I've got one of these.I don't use it every weekend, but it works and it was only $50. It does get really hot after 4 tires, so you need to let it cool off before putting it away.

1BLKJP I run a 20lb. Co2 tank in my rig. It can run air tools and fill up my 35's from about 8lbs to 28lbs. probably 5 times between tank re-fills, and only takes about 30 seconds a tire. Costs me 19 bucks a fill at a local place here in town.

It all depends on what you want and what you want to spend.

Scoob I run the York based system and love it. Airs up a 285/75R/16 from 10 to 28 pounds in right at a minute a tire. Also have the ability to run air tools, which is something very few electrics can do. However the electrics do cost less.

04moneypit My dad runs a viair set up, the 450 I believe, with 35 in tires and thinks it was a waste of money. Not nearly as fast as they say, and I've seen it in action. Harbor Freight tools sells a similar pump, for a lot less money. I have a cheapy one I carry with me (cost $15), it's a little slow, but it works. York compressors are awesome units, nothing beats a belt driven unit. But you could get that portable CO2 tank thing, hear they work pretty good, but you have to refill them.

I have the Viair 100% duty cycle setup - It's okay, but I wish I had just gone the york route to begin with. As it is, I'll be pulling it out sometime next year and replacing with the york.
