    Air compressor

    Hey everyone, looking into buying a compressor. I know most people run the ARB setup but budget really wont allow one right now. Any suggestions for an alternative brand that wont s$%t out on the trail? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I run 35s and also need to pressurize my DIY shower. Thanks

    I just bought a Viair 300p last week new for $110. I used it a couple of times and have absolutely no complaints thus far, but keep in mind that it’s brand new. Being that you have 35’s you might want the 400p?:

    If it’s something that you’re going to use a lot then save your $ for the ARB.

    Do you have a winch yet?
    The warn power plants are expensive new but I found one used on Craig's list for less than half the price. The compressor is plenty to air up tires or run air tools, hell I even ran a nail gun off of mine to finish an entertainment center I built. Could kill 2 birds with one stone if you can find a used one.

About us
“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.
