I don't know if this is where this thread belongs. If it's in the wrong spot I'm sorry... Newb here. But what I have to share is simply amazing! My friend got me this tiny little compressor from Harbor Freight for X-mas. I figured POS. It's epic. Filled a tire from on trail pressure of 25 PSI to 45 PSI in 3 minutes and it's the size of a 1 liter soda bottle. Totally replaced my bulky compressor. If any of you guys air down for trails and have to air back up for highway driving. This compressors is a MUST have. It said it was rated to do 100 PSI I took it to 80 PSI on a truck tire, took 10 mins to fill, but it did it. Wasn't even over heated. It's runs on your cigarette plug, it's quiet, it doesn't rattle all over the place and it has a large clear display that gives you the current PSI. The guy who gave it to me swears by it and said he's had his for a year and uses it regularly. It was only 25$ 12 Volt, 100 PSI High Volume Air Compressor
check it out, hope it helps you guys out. This is definitely part of my permanent off road gear bag.

I've had one of those before and it's not too bad for stock size tires and maybe 31's, but for 33x12.50 tires it takes a loooooooong time to fill (and I air down to 10-12 lbs). I kept it around until I ran over it. To give it credit, it still worked after that.

A good low cost air compressor would be a Q Industries MF-1050. We sell them for around $65. It's not quite a Viair, but you can't beat the value.

I have something like that, plugs into my cigarette lighter, I take it everywhere I go. Mine also comes with a spotlight attached to it so you can fill in the dark. You should be able to find a fairly cheap one at an auto parts store.
