    Looking into new compressors

    I just sold my viair 400p because I’m tired of airing up for 20 mins and am looking at getting something faster. Co2 is out of the question because I have nowhere to mount it, twin arb is also out of the price range. I am thinking of picking up the viair 400c twin pack and mounting them on top of my tuffy security deck. Does anyone have a similar setup?

    Well I ended up going with dual 400C package and hard mounting them. I can air up 40s from 8-26 psi in 2:07 now instead of 5 mins per tire and they get considerably less hot. For a $300 investment I’m completely satisfied.

    Posting for anyone else that may search the topic and be on the fence

    Thats a pretty clean install, do you have a small air tank in your enclosure for them as well?

    It looks like they both just feed into a block, maybe they are 100% duty cycle?

    I got them from hornblasters, I have used them in the past for service parts on my old compressor.

    I was going to run a 1 gallon tank but ended up just plumbing them to an air manifold. I only use them for airing up but I could easily replace the manifold with a small viair tank. On the manifold I just put a 75psi safety valve in case something was to nudge the on switch accidentally

    They’re actually 33% duty cycle but having 2 of them and how much air they move I don’t ever see myself getting close to that lol

“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.
