Onboard Air Compressor

What are your recommendations for a onboard air compressor for airing back up the tires after a trail ride? Iíve seen systems with 4 outputs that bolt under the front passenger seat to air each tire at the same time, to portable units similar to what I had on my 2012 JK. Iím curious what the majority are using.

Thank you

I used a Viair 450P 100% duty cycle compressor for many years keeping it cool with an aux. fan when my YJ wasn't air conditioned. Now that we have a/c, setting it on the RF floorboard and turning the vents to the floor and on high, keeps our new ARB portable twin compressor very cool. We currently use the JeepsNeeds Hurricane 4 tire air down/up manifold BUT, I have had one of the locking valves come apart. I am looking for 4 replacements that lock better onto the valve stems. They are not 100% perfect but acceptable, for now. I am thinking about installing an Up Down Air System on the jeep for all the plumbing and keeping the ARB Portable to supply the air. I DON'T like the idea of mounting the compressor under the hood or along the frame rail. All the compressors say they are 100% Duty Cycle @ room temperatures, NOT 200-300 degrees as it is under a hood.

Thank you for the information. I agree I do not want it mounted under the hood.

I say go ARB that way if you ever upgraded to the ARB lockers you have the compressor. 2nd I mounted my ARB compressor in the back under the storage compartment away from the heat under the hood. thoughts were it would be easier having the back open than having the hood open on a trail or leaving plus putting stuff away I'm already in the rear.
