    For those who have on board air, what do you guys use? I'm thinking about getting the Viair part number 10005. I'll probably be mounting the compressor under the bed along with the air tank.

    That would make sense to run that compressor. However, if I had ARBs anymore, I would still run a CO2 Tank with the ARB compressor for locker duties only.

    The reason I recommend CO2 is for the portability of it. Hell, I'm pretty sure I use my tank around the house more than for off road purposes.

    I was looking into CO2 and it is easier and faster to air up tires but I think a compressor will be better for me. I just don't like the idea of carrying a tank in my truck since It's my daily. With a compressor I'll have it ready when I need it.
    Thanks Cement, I'll keep an eye out for GB.

    20171005_164949.jpg I have my ARB compressor and tank tucked in the frame on the passenger side. I love having on board air, I use it all the time. For my rear air locker, inflating tires, running air tools, or even blowing dust out of my air filter or debris out of the bed.

    I can imagine rigging a fart sound contraption and using the CO2 to power it.

    What do you want to use it for?

    I have on board air, but just for my air bags. Assuming you want it for tires or locker?

    Eventually I'll get lockers but as of right now just for airing tires and for camping.

    I like this location you have yours. Better than under the hood taking up space IMO.

    I like the CO2 tank idea others have put forth, too. Do these tanks hold plenty of compression? Or, do they just do one tire and you need a refill? Looking at the small bottle.

    10 lb CO2 tank can fill a lot of tires.
