Question On Board Air or Winch?

So I'm trying to decide what my next mod will be.... OBA setup or a winch.

I'm kinda leaning more toward the OBA because sooner or later I'll pick up an ARB locker for the rear. I'm kinda torn because a winch will always come in handy too.

Viair OBA: Medium Use System


Winch:
Smittybilt 97281 XRC Black Winch/ Smittybilt 98281 XRC 8

If I were you, and knowing what I no now, I would bypass both and get a CO2 setup - you can air up very fast. You can pick up a tank for $40-130, a regulator for $50-150 (AirSorce) and a hose and chuck. It will also require you to refill the tanks from time-to-time. Aside from that you will be back on the road in 5 minutes!!!

And then you would just run the locker off of a CO2 setup too?

No I don't think that is possible, someone correct me if I'm wrong. The CO2 makes it quicker to air up tires, and that's the extent of it IIRC.

Not a bad idea. I do like the idea of a compressor too. I have the hi-volume ARB for my locker and if I was in a real pinch, I could air up using the ARB if I ran out of CO2.

Is possible and many do it - heres some highlights

Also - probably the best way to drive an impact tool off road as well. Try to do that with the illustrated set up.

Sweet. I'll definitely look into this. Looks like there is a good amount of info on that page

All this talk of CO2 made me order a 10 lb tank to go next to my 20 lb tank so that I can always make sure I have one with juice in the garage. I hate this site!!

Here you go...

How to build a Denny Tank:

1. Order an aluminum Co2 tank. I picked up a 15lb tank ($102 shipped) from the Beverage Factory. Most Co2 tanks have a standard fitting on them, the regulator should screw right on.

10lb Tank: $88.30
15lb Tank: $90.20
20lb Tank: $109.20

2. Order a hi flow Co2 regulator. I picked up a fixed "Offroad Air Hyper-Flow" regulator from TRDPARTS4U. Its a fixed non-freezing 150PSI regulator ($51 shipped).

3. Get an air hose with a tire chuck. I got mine at home depot for like $15.

All said and done, i spent about $175 for a 15lb Co2 setup. This would have ran me about $280-300 else where.

Tank ($102) + Regulator ($51) + Hose ($15) + Stickers (Free) = $168

Co2 Tanks - http://www.beveragefactory.com/draft...anks/co2.shtml
Regulator - http://www.trdparts4u.com/Scripts/pr...dproduct=-7165

And I vote for Both!

Why not get a cheap air pump and a good winch, then save for oba and locker? It may take longer to air up, but you can still get un-stuck.

i think OBA system is the next mod i'll do to my truck. i just got my smittybuilt XRC 8000 from ups today and hopefully tim will be shipping my bumper this week from relentless fab. so i'll be watchin this thread to see which direction you go. CO2 or air. i think i like the way siRMarlon did his and i def. like the price tag!

I agree, but you can't take oba out and put it in your wife's vehicle.

My point is, leave the small one in her car for emergencies with a plug kit. You can't be in two places at once, right?
