Pull the dash panel all the way out to trim it for the switches.

Not a lot to cut, but you'd rather be using chisel or dremel on your workbench than close to all that wiring and dash, and you only need to pull one plug to remove it clean away.

I hate wiring, I just did what seemed like a ton of it for the crawler install.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks like that. I was gunna do this to get everything mocked up and get everything wired with it out...Just have to plug wires in and tighten everything back down.

You guys do know ARB makes a compressor in a box with a tank right? You just hook the compressor up to the battery with 2 clips and your good to go.

Yeah, though that's new since I originally started this thread.

But for running locking diffs, you want it mounted and wired up.

The CKMA12 High Output is $245, a little bigger, and can be used to air up tires. So I wouldn't have to carry my VIAIR 400 portable any more - and I could sell it to make up the difference in cost between the two.

The CKSA12 draws a little less current while running.

Are there any installation considerations? Does the mini compressor fit where the high output won't? I'm thinking of mounting under the hood on the driver side fender, just behind the fuse box mount.

Are there any other differences I'm missing or any other things I ought to be thinking about?
ok i saw this post and i made an account just for this reply. whats you guys review about using air tools with the ckmta12 and a small tank?

Thats the new dual compressor 100% duty cycle one. It's bulky enough you won't be able to mount it under the hood.

aRB says it was designed to flow enough air for tools.

Suggest you compare the specs to the tools you want to carry.

Perhaps a TW member who has one will chime in.
