OBA

I am thinking about throwing On Board Air on my truck because I air up and down all the time. I plan on getting an ARB front locker next year or when ever I find money. The question is should I go with the ARB compressor or something different? Like VIAIR? Something else? Any input would be appreciated! Thanks

The ARB compressor is going to take forever to fill your tires. The VIAIR units are nice but I think I might be going with a Powertank for OBA. http://www.amazon.com/Power-Tank-PT1.../dp/B002KCE6KG

I run a SunPerformace compressor I got through a GB on CT and a 2.5 gallon tank. Works just fine for me and the compressor is 100% duty cycle. I may step up to a larger tank or throw a 2nd 2.5 on when I jump from 31's to 33's though

viair has some solid units. they are fast and seemingly indestructible. if all your doing is air locker and tires you wont even need a 100% duty cycle.

just get a decent size tank and you are good to go. 2.5 gallons or bigger

I went with this one http://www.viaircorp.com/OffRoad/10007.html because it has the lowest amp draw and its constant duty. It will be nice to run air tools on the trail if necessary. I've seen the compresser mounted in the cubby hole in the bed and the air tank right in front of the bumper. I put my compresser under the hood and the air tank right behind the axle since the spare will be in the bed. I don't know how well the system works yet since I'm still putting it together.


I have more pics in my build.
