    On board air help arb vs viair?

    Well after going on my first off road adventure at Last Chance Canyon, I'm sprung like a 16 year old girl! When we finished the run I was shocked because I really wasn't familiar with everybody airing up, I was going to go to the gas station (Yes, up until this point I have been a HABITUAL Mall Crawler). I am now looking to put on board air on my rig (In addition to 10 other things) and am not sure which route to go. I want something with power that will air up my 38's reasonably quick. I am looking at the ARB twin or the Viair extreme duty. I don't know much about these and it looks like the ARB would be easier to mount, could someone educate me on which one would be better/faster? I am looking to keep it to around $600. My Unlimited is a 13.

    Thankis

    Thanks Canvas, I saw that but wanted to compare the ARB twin vs the Viair extreme. I would lover to have the WARN power Plant but at $1850 that's $850 more than the Recon 10,500 with synthetic line and a 3 year warranty and the ARB Twin (Not that I'm comparing the Recon to the Warn).

    both are great OBA set ups. i personally run the arb twin in my '11 under the hood with the MORE mount. it cost me just under $600 thru northridge with tthe promo codes and deals. fills up my 35's in just over a min. i also run my air locker off of it. my set up is below.

    Would you say that your happy with the power output or wish it had more? By the time I add the Hose, gauge, and mounting bracket its about $75 more than the Viair Extreme, and it looks like the Extreme has more power (Still trying to figure out the cfm etc).

    I have only used it a few times to fill up my tires for fun since it is such a recent addition to my jeep but I am very happy with the power output. It filled up my tires quicker than expected (was expecting 2 mins or more)

    How loud is it in the cab when you run the compressor?

    It is located under the hood and only switched it on once while at a light cause I was bored but it was on for a second to fill up the mini manifold that is there then shuts right off. Not loud at all when I did it.

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
