    I bought one, but couldnt find a reasonable place to install it. I wanted to keep it under the hood, and I have a 2010 Sport so the obvious place the passenger wheel well is not usable due to my brakes control box. If you DONT have that crap on the passengerside wheel well, it will fit perfectly. It would also fit behind the rear seats in a double cab, but that would require extending wires and venting it outside if running an arb locker.

    After a week of trying to install it, I finally gave up and ordered the smaller ARB compressor. The CKMA12. This thing is a lot smaller so installation was a joke. I mounted it behind my fuse box. Airing up tires is a lot faster than I expected.. I dont have any numbers, but I aired way down to test it and it was similar to using the air pump in the parking lot of a gas station.

    And as far as wiring these up.. they are both super easy with the wire harnesses included. I did find that mine has a longer wireharness than the CKMTA12 did.

    In theory the twin should perform twice as well as mine, because the twin is literally two of mine, but I'm more than happy with the one I have. Plus it's half the price :D

    The CKMA12 has the ability to operate two lockers at once. The small little tank attached to the compressor has the locations already for two solenoids.

    If you look at thte picture you can see the two allen screws where the solenoids would go. The kit comes with a pressure switch that kicks on once it hits 75psi (if I recall correctly) and kick the compressor off at 100psi.

    The two screws on the bottom (blue anodized part) loosen so you can rotate the whole compressor. Also, the screw on the side of the little tank can be loosened so you can position the compressor to fit almost anywhere there is room.

    The twin is nice if youre going to run air tools, but for what it sounds like you want to do, the smaller one is perfect.

    exactly. I was thinking about having the ability to run air tools. It would be nice thats for sure. But i bet with an aux tank mounted in the back you could use air tools in short bursts..
