Thanks
you could probably redrill and tap then for 1/4 fittings, but unless you already have the tank it would just be easier to get one with the fittings already sized where you need them.

try these guys, some of the best prices i've found for new tanks:

not as many ports but that's easily fixed with some black pipe T fittings and some close nipples

just be sure to contact them and ask them what the working pressure of the tank is before you buy. should be ok since they're telling you its for an air suspension, but i would want to know up front before hand

cheaper, but heavier, and with less ports.
i have the one i linked in my jeep.
i keep it at 125# with the york, and it likes it

i'm not pushing this tank on anyone, just posting up options.
every ounce counts, and in this particular case, you save ounces, gain strength, and bling factor as well as usable ports.

I'm going to say no. First I don't know what the factory setting is on the switch. I do know the switch works opposite. If the pressure is correct you would need to wire up a relay so it works the correct way. AC pressure switch opens when low to no pressure. OBA switch opens when the pressure gets to X amount

Thanks

the OBA parts are gathered

Here are my options
85 PSI on, 105 PSI off

90 PSI on, 120 PSI off
110 PSI on, 145 PSI off

165 PSI on, 200 PSI off


Is the 145 off pushing the envelope on a 150 tank?
