York onboard air
I am starting to research how to install onboard air in my 97 tj. I want to be able to fill up my tires, fill up any of my buddies tires, and run air tools. I have heard that york is the best way to go for this. is Kilby enterprises kit worth it? ::Kilby Enterprises:: Or is it better to piece it together via separate sources? What would the price difference probably be, vs the quality of what you get? any opinions?

I installed a York-based OBA on my '97 TJ probably nearly 10 years ago and it was one of the best mods I ever did. Kilby's kit is nice & complete but all I bought from him was his mounting bracket, dual-pulley for the alternator so I could run it off a fan belt instead of using the serpentine belt, and the ports that screw into the head that make attaching the intake and output hoses possible. I paid $35 for my used but still perfectly serviceable York F210 compressor from a junkyard & pieced the whole thing together for somewhere close to $350-375. In all the time I used it until my '97 TJ was stolen in March, it was 100% reliable aside from replacing the fan belt last year for $11.
When you have a choice, buy American made.

I did about the same as Jerry, I bought the bracket, and pulley from Kilby, bought all of the other parts from local stores, and e-bay. I also installed a fitting in the front and rear to connect my hose to. Agree this is a GREAT mod, I also carry an air gun, at the end of the trail I just blow the dust off me and the inside of the jeep. This keeps it from blowing all around once I hit the highway back home.
I can quit drinking anytime I want, but hey I'm no quitter :)
