    Hey guys...

    Don't do a lot of har wheeeling, but I want a good dependable portable compressor in the kit in the event I need to air down or get a flat.

    I just bought a Viair 300P figuring if I spent a little more cash I'd get a better unit, but the wire insulation is split out of the box, the guage is off by 10psi and the bag it comes in is total crap (bad zippers). For $150 totally unacceptable all around.

    Any of you have experience with the Slime Heavy Duty Inflator (Comp06)? It's also the one included in the Slime ProSpair kit. It's way cheaper ... which is why I didn't get it in the first place! But it seems to have some good reviews out there.

    So I figured I'd ask the Tacoma community. How has it worked for you? Is it durable? What about up time?

    If not the Slime, any other recommendations for good portables? I don't wheel enough to justify an onboard unit.

    I bought that exact Slime compressor last December. I've used it maybe half a dozen times. So far the compressor itself has worked fine. I haven't had any issues with it. The gauge seems to read true, at least it's in line my old cheap air gauge. The unit also has a built in light, which I haven't really used. The gauge doesn't light up though, so if you're using it in the dark you'll still need a flashlight. The bag that it comes with is, like the Viair's, pretty crappy. It's a PIA to get it in or out of the bag. It's just too tight of a fit. The hose has a quick release fitting to connect it to the compressor. The other end threads onto the valve stem pretty securely. I would rather have a quick release fitting on both ends, but it's not that big of a deal since it's just for airing up tires.

    I thought about mounting it under the hood and putting a switch in the cab to turn it on and off, but since I don't do any serious wheeling I figure it's not worth the extra effort for me right now.
