    The 88P is a pretty light unit at 4.75 lb given the fairly large CFM it flows. This means less metal mass to absorb heat generated by compression, thus higher temperature.

    I didn't. I kept seeing great reviews about the 88P and pulled the trigger. It will suit my needs just fine, i'm assuming. Can these things fit in the bed cubby's?

    Got in in the mail over the weekend. Damn the thing is small. Haven't taken it out of the box yet but i'm thinking it should fit.

    Simple OME/884/AAL lift.
    I have the Viair 90p and it's worked flawlessly. Inflates from 15-35 psi in 2-3 minutes.

    Did you mount it in the engine bay? Also does it have an external air filter?

    @Sandman614 is correct. There is a metal tab on one end and the other end has two mounting holes in a plastic part underneath the compressor.

    It fits snugly in the larger bed cubby. Great compressor.

    I pick up the 88p a few yrs ago after doing a lot of research and I have been very happy with it. It fits nice in a little canvas bag I have. The canvas bag comes in handy when your using the compressor. I have a slab of wood that fits in the bag on the bottom, I pull it out and set the compressor on top, it keeps dirt and water from junking up your investment. Also keep a small towel to clean the hose off. Let her cool down before you pack away.

    You probably could. I just keep mine behind the rear seats and take it out when I need it.
