So.. you let air out of your tires.. now what
 
so after a wheeling session.. your tires are 10-12 pounds and you need to hit the pavement.

what is the best portable compressor option to air back up again?

This is probably what I would run. What is "best" depends on a lot of things.

good option.. I checked on amazon and there are all the viair optoins and pricing .. their website doesn't list any of that stuff.


mounting.. Mmmm.. have to do some noodling on that.

ARB makes a good one. Northridge has it with a bracket that bolts to the brake booster. Small, out of the way and does a good job.

How about CO2? Powertank or Poly Perfomance.

I use that ARB single compressor with the mounting bracket. Love it! I like that it is hidden away under the hood. Fills up my 37's from 10 psi (trail setting) to 25 psi (pavement setting) in about 3 minutes.

that sound nice.. i have wanted raise this question for a while.. but seemed simple. The ARB sound perfect:cheers2:

I just installed the ARB compressor kit from northridge, like HappyTrails said about 3 minutes per tire. I love it!

I have the Viair Medium Duty System on my TJ. I like the fact that it has a 2.5 gal tank so I can run an air tool for short bursts if need be. It fills my 35's from 12psi to 35psi in less than 2 minutes a tire. I have to stop between tires and let the compressor breath because I don't have a 100% duty cycle compressor, but that's no big deal.

I also run my ARB off of that system and will run air horns as soon as I get some mounted up.

There are few good options, CO2, portable compressors, mounted electric compressors with or without tanks, York style engine-driven compressors, ect.

I like the Viair system because it's fast, reliable, and there is room to add other air driven devices.

Let me know if you have any questions at all!

Ryan,, is the tank mounted .. or do you just pack it and use it when needed? i have a portable 2.5 gallon but not sure how many tires I can do with just it.. or how to run air tools off it.

Being and enduro guy.. I always try stuff out in the driveway first, ensure i have all the tools needed, so i will be letting the air down and try some refills on my tank alone.

ARB sounds nice. I have a suitcase style compressor in my truck for emergencies. It will fill them relatively fast, and its portable from the truck to the Jeep.
Runs off the battery with 2 alligator clips.

Any model numbers etc on the ARB unit? Price etc.

I have my tank mounted under the tub and a quick disconnect mounted up high under the hood to keep it clean and dry.

I may have gone with a totally portable kit if I didn't have the ARB in the rear, but I'm really happy with the kit I have overall.

Let me know if you have any other questions at all!

If you get the ARB under hood mounted compressor make sure it is the ARB-CKMA12 model, that is the compressor for air lockers and/or filling tires. I got the kit with mounting bracket, air hose, and inflator for $319.95

Dual viar 444cs and a 5 gallon tank and install items for $300~...Will dominate many things.
