I've been searching for a number of months for something that would prove reliable the few times I would need it. I ended up deciding this would be the best, moderately expensive, air compressor to throw in the back when heading out on the trails:

http://www.autoanything.com/suspension-systems/69A3199A0A0.aspx

All the other options seemed pretty good, but only 1 or 2 others seemed worthy of a purchase. While shopping at Costco the other day, I ran across a compressor from Q Industries that I ultimately purchased. There is nothing on the net covering the specific model number, but it was about $50. Alligator clips for the battery, 16' air hose, etc. I'll se if I can remember to post some photos of it & maybe a mini review if I get the chance to use it.

While researching options, I came across this site:

Pretty good info on a few of the many options that are out there.

Interesting article. VIAIR was the choice for me prior to the article and it still seems like an excellent choice. I had never heard of the Oasis brand but its just an electrically driven york-style compressor it would seem. For the price of just that comp I would get a york from a Jyard and fab up a full system with tanks and various chuck locations and still have gas money left over. Wink Of course then that would require your engine still be running at the end of the day.

Viair with 1 or 2, 1-3 gallon hotdog tanks stuffed in a frame rail or tucked out of the way somewhere, 1 chuck and a hose. Done.

At a 1:18 there showing a PF airing up after a day of playing on the trail. Very Happy


If your not into running a compressor you can do this.

I have used my Scuba tanks to fill tires and run air tools. A standard scuba tank is a Alum 80 cf. @3000psi. all you need is a cheep scuba regulator with a 1/4 femal connector. you can find all of this at your local dive shop for under a 150$ if you get used.
