Adventure Van Creature Comforts: Compressed Air

Hello! I'm new around here so here's a small blurb about myself. I've just bought a 2004 GMC Savana AWD and am building out the interior. As an avid outdoorsman I want a self-contained camping rig/something that I can move myself across country with (as my job is flexible and allows me this option). I've found this forum very helpful in coming up with new, exciting ways to spend my paychecks (as if preexisting addictions to motorcycles and mountain bikes didn't already suffice). I am particularly excited to build a roof rack and also hopefully weld up a ladder.

So, on that note, since all of you seem to have pretty awesome rigs I would like to know how many, if any, of you have fashioned up some way to have compressed air on board. I think it would be wholly unnecessary, though a really great tool to have if I were doing a track day and a really trick way to put air in my bicycle tires before a trail ride I also see people putting train horns on their vans...sounds handy in East Coast traffic!

I have an Extreme Aire Magnum mounted on my 2011 - I use it every trip to air back up and I count is as one of the most useful improvements on the van. I use it at home almost as much for all our trailer and truck tires too. The Magnum (with a tank) has enough air to run my air impact wrench which I keep in the truck to pull my lug nuts off and I also use it for a pneumatic jack which helps a lots since these things are so heavy.

I have a Warn VTC compressor... And I absolutely LOVE it. I won't use a smaller 12V compressor again... Though some of the belt driven systems are pretty tantalizing too. The VMAC would be phenomenal if I could find one on a wrecked work truck for cheap...

I have an ARB twin compressor and 5gal air tank. Quick connect fittings in front and rear bumpers. The compressor is mounted under the van on a custom shelf with the air pickup/filter run up into the engine bay.
