    Why not hardwire a 100% duty cycle on board air compressor in?? No need to plug it in.

    Don't you need a ridiculously large gauge wire to do that? I'm pretty sure it's been researched and scrapped cause you'd need a wicked large wire.

    Rhino Lined exterior,Fab Tech 6", 1.25" SpiderTrax spacers, Wheels painted Rustoleum Hammered Black, All Pro front plate bumper, Warn 9.5 ti winch, BHLM, Cig lighter constant on, Door beep toggle switch, Locker mod, Lock/unlock beeper Mod, Rear tailights smoked, 750w inverter with the outlets and on/off switch wired to rear of the console, Blacked out badges, blacked out rear bumper.
    I put a 750 in mine and then wired the outlets to come out in the back of the console in front of the back seats. I would have gone bigger but i had that unused from when i went to iraq the last time and they had 3200 watt inverters in all our vehicles:) so i jsut sent the 750 home. i will eventually go bigger. remember anything you want to run that is bigger than 110 is not going to operate for more than a second. there is a mod for this i will try to find the one i used.

    Here it is

    you can find this link among others in the mods and tutorials link at the top of the page under cheap mods
