    id like to pick up an air compressor just to throw behind my back seat for emergency situations and airing up when needed. Can anyone recommend one? I don't want a cheap-o $19.99 Walmart one. But don't want super expensive either. I'm thinking $50-100 range? What should I get? Amazon preferred.

    I've got this one mounted as an OBA compressor. It runs my locker and inflates all 4x32" tires in about 10 mins.

    Whats the reason for going hard mounted? Its small, portable and fills things with air. Dont think id need anything more fancy then that

    I got a pancake compressor from Harbor Freight which was around $50 after coupon & has low enough draw that I can plug it into the outlet in the bed. Maybe not small enough if you're looking to leave it in the truck though. I also don't know that I'd trust a HF el cheapo compressor to survive years of vibrations & bumps even though they vibrate when they're running.

    Air locker and constant use filling tires after offroading. We don't know the full extent of OPs uses so I was throwing it out there.
