I'm glad you enjoyed it! Thanks to you and everyone else who's looked it over, lately!

Is this a good time to mention a website that's in development?

Will this be a zombie cleansing "how to" website or simply a guide to survival in the Wasteland without all the distractions swami worshipers?

Why am I even asking? You probably won't tell.

Heil Swami!

Actually, that's what I'm planning...a site where I can basically replicate a lot of what's in the thread, and also add a few things that aren't specifically related. I want the thread to be the "latest and greatest" and the website to be more easily-searched and a bit of an information repository. Again, inspiration from Stu.

If that's a supporting vote, then thank you. Conversely, if you're suggesting that I have Yes - the band - somehow related to my website info...well, actually, that's a pretty good idea too...huh...

Hmm...well, like the rest of the site/thread, I suppose it depends on how many people would be interested in seeing it.

Sundowner, this is the best thread I have come across on JF and just wanted to say thank you for the breath of fresh air!

You have my vote for an Annabelle gallery, you are a lucky man

Maybe Im confused, Is your jeep a rubicon? Do I remember you talking about moving the compressor? If so, and your going to OBA, wouldnt it be good to include a small tank and bypass the rubicon stuff all together?
Maybe not because I do not fully understand how the rubicon system actually works.
I have always wanted OBA to include a small tank that could be used for, an air horn, lockers or adjustable shocks (in the past I was fond of rancho 9000's), or even inflating an inner tube at the lake. Also something I have come to really appreciate being a truck driver in the oilfield, is a nozzle to blow out some of the dust after a trail ride, both the jeep and your clothes and hair. So to inject my opinion (because you havent asked for it) I would say go with a small tank and a pressure switch set up to keep the tank topped off. If you are anal about air leaks and keep them in check the system will almost never run until your using it.

Balzer, short of train horns, everything you describe can be run off a properly set up OBA set-up without a tank. A 210 series compressor pumps out enough air to take a 35" tire from 10 to 35 PSI in less than a minute. With an airtank, the compressor still kicks on in under 5 seconds under the same scenario. To run without a tank, you still use a pressure switch. The only difference is that instead of filling a tank and the airlines leading to front and back, you are only filling airlines.

Yes, Greta is a Rubicon. Yes, I'm moving her locker compressors. No, it would NOT be good to bypass the Rubicon compressors altogether...

The Rubicon lockers only require 5 PSI to engage and remain locked...which is why they have such miniature locker pumps. Removing them to attempt a connection to an on-board air compressor would require a LOT of work in order to maintain their functionality. It's been tried before, and the more savvy members of the class know that even if it SEEMS complicated to have four separate compressors on board, it's really a pretty seamless system: you retain your factory A/C, gain a dedicated tire/tool compressor, and each locker maintains its own compressor. That's a good kind of redundancy.

People are split on the tank/no tank debate. I don't plan on running a horn, and although I might place auxiliary bags in the rear shocks for heavier loads, they are an independent system that's trimmed and left alone...there's no dedicated hard line that feeds them. With this in mind, I don't really have a huge need for a tank. What I do have a need for is a manifold, and a little bit of expansion room in the system...so a small tank that can serve as a manifold may be the way to go. Regardless, a pressure switch and safety valves must be used...these could also go on the integrated tank/manifold. We'll see. Excellent idea on the air nozzle!
