You should switch to an o-pipe with an oil bypass line. You'll save many mpgs cause your recycling your exhaust gases (like a turbo, without the turbo)

Bought this for it, I'll probably mount it in the back on the storage box to keep it clean.

I was thinking about it, but the y-pipe was cheaper. And I already have the entire engine oil bypass kit. Works wonders

Pay a visit to your local Chrysler/Jeep dealership and ask them to pull a build sheet for your Jeep. There's a good chance you'll get a new spare tire and rim out of it.

Ever tried an ac compressor for air up? Mine fills my little tank really fast.

It's simple mine is one line tee'd into the pcv line, other run to a pressure switch then to my homemade tank. Just powered the switch with the other side running 12v to the clutch. Get a jy one.

50% duty cycle, 2.5CFM. About 4.5 cubic feet per tire to get back to road pressure, call it 20 cubic feet total. No need to shut it off between tires. A few of the guys run them and it takes about 15 minutes to get 4 35's back to road pressure.

If it's got a thermal cutoff, it might shut off sooner in hot weather.

I think it does have a thermal protection switch in it, I figure mounting it in the back will keep it a bit cooler than if I mounted it under the hood like I have seen done a few times
