Best Air Compressor for Filling tires....

Hey guys whats up. Im looking for an air compressor I can stick under the hood of my WK. As I do alot of Beach driving for Surf fishing. I am wanting to get a Good Air compressor. This way I dont have to wait online at the fil up station at the beach... Some dont have these so It would be beneficial to get one..

With that said.

I want one that will take max 3 mins to fill each tire.

One that can be placed under the Hood.

Does minimum 2 CFM constant

Dont wanna spend a crazy amount of money. Max $150

I searched online found a few, But not sure which one to get. Even seraching the site, there are many different views and takes on this.. PLease let me know what you guys think.

For ARB I like the CKSA12 or CKMA12 ---But what is the differences between the two? And I was hearing that the CKSA is just for people who have lockers?

For Vlair I like the 275C Compressor Kit or VIAIR 100C Compressor Kit -- Just dont know much about these

Also some recommended the Superflow MV90 or MV50

The smittybilt 2781 is about $150 and pretty potent for the price. Plus if you get it locally at a four wheel parts store, they can warranty it if it ever breaks. I hard mounted mine in my Yj and now everyone lines up at my jeep after the trail ride to get their tires filled back up rather than wait for their crappy compressors.

MA12, CK12 is designed just for lockers. Look into the Viair 370

This is not a compressor, but does an awesome job at inflating my 32" tires from 12 lbs up to 32 lbs at about a minute per tire. I get about 6 or 7 trail runs per charge. Yes it costs money to fill the tank, but there are no mechanical parts to wear out or deal with. It's a simple and convenient system, but it will run you about $250.

How do you charge it? Can it be refilled with any compressor?
