on board air

What are you guys using. Is a tank a good idea for refilling after airing down for wheeling, or is a compressor better. If the compressor is better, which one. I don't even know the tank is a possibility.
Thanks

Dennis,

I run a QuickAir 2 on my Disco. It's enough to pop a bead on a stock rim. I installed a Viair 5 gal tank but didn't like the performance of the compressor with the tank so I removed it.

I think Jimmy runs a Co2 tank.

Good luck.

I'm impressed that you can reset a bead with that! Do you know if it can run airtools? How much are they? Thanks

I have a Quickair 2 and a CO2 tank. I now only use the Quickair for the ARB lockers. CO2 is much faster for tires and one can run air tools on the tank, Quickair wont do tools...

I have an Oasis HP1000. I'm running an open chuck right now. I plan on building slider/tanks but haven't got around to it yet....
It's probably overkill, but it will run a 1/2" impact wrench and fills tires in no time. Downside- probably weighs 50 lbs.

Honestly, the only air tool I've run on the compressor is an air grease gun, that's it.

I'm impressed it can pop a bead also, I've had the unit for over 5 years and have used it many times to pop beads on LR alloy rims. I purchased some BFG AT 285/75 from Jimmy a few years ago and installed them on a set of Tornado rims using the QA2.

I believe they are a couple a' hundred bucks these days, I paid around $125 for mine years ago.

CO2 Air loss

I am not running anything right now but I was wondering, I have run c02 on MTB tires for a long time and have noticed a significant drop in air pressure over time. Has anyone noticed this on truck tires with CO2?
Thanks

Engine driven. $25

Only downside is you spend too much time airing everybody else that has an electric compressor.

I've seen a tube buggy at a local off-road park with a nice air set-up, They bought an air compressor thats designed to run on those lowrider air ride trucks, 2 1/2 gallon tank, and all the hoses and fittings you needed to run locker/fill tires/run tools. It could fill up their buddies 35' faster than the other electric compressors i've seen. But a powertank will fill up a tire faster

This is an older post now, but they work really great. I suppose mine has been running about 4 years now. A bunch of friends wanted me to do it with serp belts, but I just had too many things to do, so I don't know if you can fit one with them.

I use a 15-pound Power Tank - it's fast and I carry a scale to keep track of how much co2 is left in the bottle.

What kind of regulator do I need. I went down to the gas shop in my area and the regulator was 200+.

I did what Jimmy did with the Power tank regulator. Hmm.. The shop down here in DC quoted me I think 200 for a tank and regulator.

Powertank with a Harbor Freight compressor (Viair knockoff) for a back-up. C02 tanks kick but for running an impact wrench or a cutoff wheel on the trail.

You can usually find the regulators on Ebay for pretty cheap.

I have noticed a drop after parking the car overnight. At times about 10psi. Never drops while driving and is easily topped off. I think the convenience of the CO2 tank far out-ways the loss of pressure. It may also be that when I stop the air in the tires cools and pressure is reduced.
