    I honestly don't remember the total cost. The compressor was $515ish, I think the tanks was like 40 and 30$ for the Viair kit. Plus the plumbing.

    If you're connecting it to a barb any of it will stretch and come off. Best bet is high temp or steel braided.

    I have probably 4 feet from the conpressor to the manifold. The hose may be high heat I don't remember. I used barb with tight hose clamps

    I used a bulkhead fitting for my quick connect on my bumper. Found one with female 1/4 NPT threads, and a PTC 3/8" for my air hose. You should be able to find a bulkhead fitting for whatever you're using.

    http://www.amazon.com/MettleAir-MTM...&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00

    I've seen people just thread their connects together right though a piece of metal, but I don't see how that could work without leaking, or without the fitting being loose.

    My AC system has a phantom leak the shops can't find it which I assume means the evaporator behind the dash... So I'm looking at using the stock AC comoressor with oiler before and filter after. Anyone have a link for this being done on 2nd gen? I see lots of threads but it sounds like they're adding a comoressor not reusing the stock one on the 4.0 v6.

    I've been working on installing my portable compressor as a permanent OBA setup, and made some more progress today. Got everything mounted, now just need to plumb the lockers and wire it up! I ran a stainless steel hose from the compressor, through the wall of the plastic compartment into the other side, to the tank. The manifold is plumbed directly from the tank. I need to re-wire the harness a bit, because the portable compressor's wiring is a bit different (pressure switch and relay are inside the compressor housing). Should get the wiring done tomorrow, and plumbing done by this weekend, looking forward to testing out these lockers!
