    well it certainly passes the beer test mentioned above, at least with my tires. Im not in that much of a hurry to get air in my tires I guess.

    Speed, longevity. But mostly speed and longevity. All of these compressors get hot, the best ones are made to handle it. It’s one thing if you’re just airing up a beach ball to 3-5psi but if you’re going to let the air out of all four 285’s you damn well better be sure you can put it back.

    I based my Amazon purchase on the 27,000+ reviews. I can only speak for this compressor but it works great.

    Oh wow I thought it would take way less time with 5.65 CFM compared to my Viair 87P at 1.26 CFM. I thought I had the 88P (1.47 CFM) but I had to check lol
    Maybe it's not even worth to upgrading.

    I could be mistaken It might be more like 10 mins to all of them. I take my time when doing it and always check with a second gauge since I don't trust the one on the hose itself.

    Needed a few more AMPS mounting patterns for what I got planned down the road, so CNCed this new dash mount. Didn't even need to drill any holes in the dash or use sticky tape and my phone isn't going anywhere, especially with the Hondo phone mount.

    Now that winter temps are here I've been using the seat heaters with my Wet Okeley seat covers and it is amazing. They warm up very quickly and having one on the seat and the seat backing is great. The wife enjoys it so much that she doesn't mind how much they cost lol.

    Little hard to give the full picture, but I have some thin straps running between the dashboard and head unit that mount underneath the dashboard. The straps are connected to the CNCed fixture by a rod with screws to adjust the tension.

    Nice truck!
    Which pocket jump starter do you use?
    I have one, but I never used it. Getting those things to Hawaii is pretty difficult because of the lithium.
