OBA system

i am looking into buying / building an OBA system.....

i will be going down the the OBX, NC for some beach wheeling and i am going to need to air down....

I've seen the 12 volt air compressors at tractor supply, cheap little 30.oo thing, but i am assuming (pretty damn sure) that they are slower then hell....

What i am thinking is i have a 5 gallon portable air tank that i could use as a holding tank, but prolly wouldn't be enough to inflate 10 psi in all 4 tires.... so i'd need to replenish the air in the tank with something....

what can i use...

i have 100.00 for the system....

i am an avid paintballer and i have 3- 20 oz co2 tanks, and a 92 CI, 4500 PSI air tank i can use.... however i have no tire fittings...

we have a regular compressor that runs 110v and holds 15 gallons, but that wont fit and or run in the jeep.....

ideas??

Check out this thread. It's in the General Offroad section, which I think this thread should probably be. I have the red MV-1050. It's great.

Harbor frieght.

They sell a small portable that will work if you are not in a hurry, and it's less than $50.

ME...I felt airing down is SO important that I did a belt driven oba.

what CFM is good for 31" tires....

I don't want to spend 15 minutes Airing back up, however i don't need anything that loads them up in 10 seconds....

harbor freight sounds like it is a slower and hotter pump then the costco.... i am looking for costco quality... online or wherever..
thanks

i have a SCBA bottle setup with a modded wielding reg on it to control flow. i can air up in no time. it holds 60ft^3 at 2500PSI. only thing is i can fill it at my fire house you would have a problem with that but any dive shop will fill it for a fee.

i found a site that compared all the compressors( well allot)

nothing seems to be incredibly fast besides a Co2 tank... So i will just buy a HF one and have a few sodas while i wait

might even permanently mount it.. see how it works.

I got mine from Pep Boys. $50 after the $10 rebate(which I haven't gotten back). It's an MF-1050. Their web site seems to be down right now so I can't give you a link. It's www.pepboys.com
