DIY co2 parts list

I've been meaning to setup a co2 system for the Jeep but have no plans on buying a 400-500$ kit. Did any of you DIY types keep a parts list of what is needed to make your own system?

I was looking through lots of pages in search but have had no luck. Any links, etc. would be appreciated. I've seen a bunch of 10lb bottles on ebay for ~80 shipped but I'm guessing the local fire extinguisher place will have better deals.

20 lb co2 bottle on ebay is about $85. Regulator from a welding supply is about $60 and a hose is about $10.

2007, 4 door, powered by a minivan engine, locked and riding on 35's.

My Source 10lb. system was $225 or something like that. Came with bottle, regulator, boot and mount. I think shipping was included too.

I can vouch for Source - loving mine so far. They can be had used as well, just keep your eyes open. I think igofshn has it pretty much nailed. Just make sure you get a good tire chuck too. I like my clip-on chuck with a trigger and gauge.

thanks for the great tips guys I appreciate it.

one more question for ya. assuming i had a bottle, regulator, and hose/chuck, are there any other necessary fittings that i would need to complete the system? i almost feel like it's just so much more simple than my brain makes it out to be lol.

that source kit looks nice and the price is pretty damn good.. i'm going to hit up the local welding and fire extinguisher shops and see if they have anything laying around. and if they dont or want too much, i'll go with the source setup..

Pretty much covers it. You'll have a quick connect at both ends of the hose, so you can take off your tire chuck to run air tools. I attempted putting a blower nozzle (trigger type) on mine, but pitched it because it was leaky. It was just a cheap one from Harbor Freight, so didn't break my heart too much.

I saw an engine cleaning nozzle on HF that caught my eye. Basically mixes the air with cleaning solvent to make it a powersprayer. That will be fun for detailing the stangs engine bay with the utility powers of the Jeep!!

Tomorrow is my free afternoon since I take a 60mi roundtrip to my old mans to talk business and shoot the breeze. I'll have to add in some waypoints to the local welding and FE shops so I can make some detours and get some info.

15lbs seems just perfect for a bottle size to me. For a mounting point I will most likely just make my own brackets or modify existing ones and mount it to the metal shell of the instatrunk, and I guess a lock on the part that wraps around the bottle. Can never be too careful here in NY with the top down....

Cleaning solvent at 150 PSI...


A sandblaster would do the same job

You can get a fixed regulator for about $45 if all you plan on doing is filling tires and using the blow gun. I have about $100 into mine, but I had a 10lb tank laying around. Thats for the bracket, regulator, hose, and tire chuck/ blow gun, etc. Check out www.offroadairstore.com for some decent deals.
