    I am lookin ahead and trying to figure out the best OBA solution. VIAIR makes some great kits, and they aren't nearly as pricey as i thought they would be.

    Anyone have any experience with these guys in OBA?

    What kit would be best for air lockers??

    I have no experience with on board systems but I can tell you I really like my ViAir 90 portable. Its cheap and fast and has worked flawlessly for two seasons now.

    I recommend a dual compressor setup. I have a single Viair 350C with one of their 2 gal tanks, and it takes about 15-25 minutes to fill my 33s from 15-35 depending on elevation. I'm going to get another 350C once I have the money.

    I was thinking of upgrading to a 11 gallon, I have a 2 gallon now. The 2 gallon at 130 psi fills one tire from 18 to 32.

    IMO, if you're thinking about lockers I'd just go with the ARB CKMA12 and get a separate tank.

    hmmm i shall contiune research i think. Will be a while yet. I might have to sell some supra parts to afford this and dual batteries plus the locker lol

    But so far it looks like the ARB dual setup with a tank is cheaper then the VIAIR Ultra kit plus a second 480c pump. Not to mention the ARB will be WAY easier to install as its more compact.
