Debating a Quick-Air compressor

I'm looking for a reliable fast compressor for airing up after airing down. I don't plan on running air lockers or tools. I like the Quick Air doesn't require installation, is portable and has a good rep. I can't say I'm enamored of the price but will pay for quality.

Read this thread that mentions the Pepboys option http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...ssor-best.html

But that's all a search on Quick Air turned up.

Looking for more opinions and options.

This is what you are looking for: http://www.viaircorp.com/

It's a matter of how long you want to wait on filling up tires. Lesser compressors will overheat and require periods of rest. So far, VIAIR is the only ones I hear about that are worth buying. If it wasn't for the whole burning up issue, I would be fine buying a cheap harbor freight unit.

Here is a link to what I have been using for 4 years now, Well Kind of. I pulled it apart and mounted the compressor under the hood and the tank under the truck along with some hose and a different pressure switch. It kicks ass! 3.0 cfm at 90 psi. or you can just leave it all together and carry it in the bed but it is kind of big.

Sorry the first link was the wrong unit the one I use is the 1.5 gal 12 volt unit. Try that link.

Here is a pic of the compressor mounted the tank and where the hose is stored. If you want air and don't want to stand around for an hour re inflating this is a good option.

Thanks for the input.

Still reading and there's lots of good things said about the Masterflow. Saw quite a few systems that tweak the masterflow portable into a mounted system to run tanks using ViAIR parts. Looks like a good first step that can grow later.
