Airing down your tires for the trail is an essential part of off-roading and one that will give you significantly better traction on the rocks and will also offer a much more comfortable ride. However, getting your tires aired back up at the end of the day can be somewhat of a problem especially if you’re still a ways off from a gas station with a working air compressor. Of course, the best solution to this problem is to bring your own source of air but a good hard mounted compressor or CO2 air tank can take up a lot of space inside your Jeep and most of the basic portable units simply don’t have what it takes to fill up four over sized tires in a reasonable amount of time. And, that’s why we decided to get an ARB High Output On-Board Air Compressor for our old 2009 Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited.
Compact and powerful, the ARB High Output On-Board Air Compressor is affordable and can be installed with ease under the hood. With this setup, you’ll have a reliable source of air with you at all times and without taking up any space inside your Jeep.To find out how easy it really is to install the ARB High Output On-Board Air Compressor on your Jeep JK Wrangler, simply follow the instructions below.
ARB High Output On-Board Air Compressor Under the Hood JK Installation Write-Up
I’ve heard that the ARB Compressor has caught on fiire on some occasions when installed in the engine compartment. Has anyone experienced that or heard of that? I am looking into buying a dual tank compressor but am worried that it will catch fire, especially while driving. My other choice is the VIAIR compressor. I am looking at that one also. That one has a dual compressor on a two gallon tank. I can really see myself buying that one more. Any suggestions-thoughts?
