Thanks Shenrie! After doing several in depth, expensive OBA setups I think I'm done with them. They are great and slick and all that but they all leak and there's really no way to put a big enough tank under a vehicle to make it like a home compressor. I think I may just grab one of these cheap little suckers.

^^^ np man!

I first used an mv50 years ago at a race when I deflated a tire to far. A buddy offered me his and all of a sudden I was way over inflated. I inquired where he had picked up the unit as everything I had seen or used prior was garbage. I went to the store where he picked it up, but they had stopped selling them, so I kept just parking next to him at the events, lol. Once I read that thread on expo I had an ah ha moment and ordered one up.

My onboard system isnít a chronic leaker but I was under compressored. Guy who sold me the setup thought I just needed it for the airbags, which it worked fine on till inflating 33ís in 100+ degree temps. Iím likely picking up a puma for the onboard system. Our budget wonít allow the official overland brands, but with as much stuff as we do where we need air, itís just too handy not to have at our disposal.

I understand your frustration with obaís, but the systems are defined by the fittings. Again I have the wisdom of friends that have built blm fire trucks and air ride systems for years that show me the way. Like Iíve said many times, Iíd be nowhere without their help.

I would suggest you to research it before deciding what you want to get. I also wanted an air compressor back in the day as I have an Audi A6 And the tires are custom-made which can create some issues if you're a compressor is not competent enough. I had some friends recommending me Bostictch and Craftman And since I knew both of them were exceptionally good I was in doubt. So after digging a bit deeper I found an article on kylesgarage.com where you get the full picture and know where to head next. I figured out that a Craftsman would be much better for my multiple needs at home.
