RedWrangX cool, hey you never answered me about the club thing
06-14-2007 01:35 PM
JCS05Rubi you can get them at pepboys for 74 or for 85

Just make sure you get the Masterflow 1050, or Superflow MV-50, Nothing else! Everything else is cheap and slow

Do a google search, youll see many good reviews

RedWrangX lol, if i didnt know i needed a compressor to fill the tank i probably shouldnt be on the road. and yeah i can get the hose, etc for nothing, and even a tank. but the tank i dont want. its a 134 tank that originally only had an "out" valve and now has an "in" valve welded in a hole that was drillled! lmao, i am not riding down the road with that! i will check out the mf 1050 first, then look at a tank as a last, thanks for the help guys. in a year when my wife is done with her nursing school maybe i will buy a nice co2 getup

JCS05Rubi If you want to spend 30-60, then buy the masterflow 1050...

Otherwise, if you really want to save 20 bucks, go to walmart and get a portable tank. Just remember that you either need a compressor or a shop to put air in it for you. Also, I really doubt your gonna get a tank, line, and chuck (assuming a shop will be nice to you) for under the cost of the MF, but its your choice I suppose.

RedWrangX i dont plan on replumbing anything or doing anything crazy. i dont do much offroading either. i live near dc, not much to do here for trails. i also dont pretend to be some crazy balls to the wall extreme off roader. so i tend to take the practical , and cheap, mods. so a 2-300 dollar co2 setup is too much. i am just going to pay 30-60 bucks for the air tank and just fill it up when i do get to hit the beach or something. kind of brings be back to my original question though
06-13-2007 05:40 PM
1BLKJP Sure there are various methods of adding OBA to your rig. I personally don't feel like completely losing my A/C yet, or having to relocate it and then having to re-plumb it all and the compressor also.

For me Co2 is just easier.
06-13-2007 04:56 PM
penguin_in_a_cj have any of you thought of a remote tank and a cadilac air ride comp
06-13-2007 03:57 PM
1BLKJP I picked up a 20lb tank, regulator, hose and chuck off of ebay for 150 bucks shipped. My 20lb tank costs me exactly 19.28 to fill at a shop by my office. It lasts me probably 6 or 8 trips and that's filling up 35's from 8 to 26 or so. If you were to pick up a 10lb tank it would last you probably an entire year based on the amount of wheelin do.

Now if you are looking for Powertanks from "The Source" or something then yeah they are too damn expensive.

MoA co2 here costs like 15 cents an ounce.. i love paintballing =D

I make my own methane.

erickpl I got a 10 LB CO2 tank from for 70.00.
I got a fixed CO2 regulator from 4x4rockshop for about 45.00
I got the hose/chuck setup from Harbor Freight for about 5.00.

So, $120 for CO2. Fills are about 15.00. I've got 33" MT's on my rig and I've filled em twice and helped somebody else do theirs. So I think I have about 1 or 2 wheeling trips left before I refill again.

Just need to fab up a carrier for my Jeeperman tire carrier to hold it (I don't wanna pay 125 for a piece of metal and a holder).

JCS05Rubi 20 bucks a fill up, plus what, 300 for the system? CO2 is nice, I just cant afford it right now.

Think of it this way.

Under 100 bucks, get a Masterflow 1050

If you got 300 to spend, get co2

If your loaded, get a viar OBA system

JCS05Rubi Also, if you search google, there are lots of good reviews on yota tech, rubiconownersforum, and I believe even jeepforum/pirate:chair:

Seems like the broke offroaders oasis to OBA

If you want the links to them and the Masterflow vs QuickAir2 tests I can get those. I dont want to link out of WF unless I have to though.
06-13-2007 11:17 AM
JCS05Rubi If your on a budget, I have a friend that has a Masterflow 1050 portable compressor. Has everything you need (including case) and its under 100 bucks. You can even add an air tank to it later. My buddies has lasted a LONG time airing up 33s every weekend, along with the occasional toy etc. Faster than a QuickAir 2, and less than 1/4 the price. Plus its reliable.

Thats the route I am going because I cant afford co2 or a $1500 OBA setup.

RedWrangX yeah those are cool but co2 is damn expensive to fill

Scout Here a link:
06-13-2007 10:40 AM
RedWrangX co2 eh? like portable canisters or something? got some links or something as to what i need to be looking at???
06-13-2007 10:37 AM
Scout Before you pull the trigger on that take a look at Co2. I had an ARB portable air compressor and after going to Co2 I'll never go back to a compressor. It's cheap and SUPER fast.
06-13-2007 10:23 AM
Odhinn I started running with a portable hand held air compressor from wally world (fits easily under the seat). Cheap and Simple. Before that I had a converted 134a tank (20 lbs can, not sure of exact gallons) I would fill before heading out.

onboard air

i am looing into an onboard tank, etc. for the next mod for my tj. i only have 31 inch bfgs so how many gallons should i get??? i would just need one big enough for the occasional air down then up again. i am thinking it would be a good idea to have one that holds enough air to air down then up again atleast two times. ofcourse the other option is a pump rather then a tank, but i am trying to do this on the cheap
