Re: thinking of getting a new air pump

It looks pretty nice. I'm very satisfied with my new Viair setup so far. I got the next size up pump, I think (a 450C) with the entire vehicle kit. No experience with airing up big tires yet but it's 100% duty cycle on tires up to 37" it says. It's very fast and quiet.

Re: thinking of getting a new air pump

The 450C actually has a much lower CFM rating, but it has a 100% duty cycle so it is better for filling tanks. I have the 450C with a tank in my K5, but after spending way too much time researching an air setup for the van (including powertanks, which I like best but can't justify the cost), I think I'll end up with with the 400P automatic. The 400P auto flows almost double what the 450c does and it automatically shuts off when you aren't using it. The 440p will fill a little faster still, but does not have the auto shut off feature and costs quite a bit more... GTDad, I think the 400p is probably the best value for occasional use.

Thank you very much for the info.
Someday I may look into installing an air system but for now i just want a good quality air pump..

Re: thinking of getting a new air pump

Santa brought me this ARB compressor: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004P9 ... UTF8&psc=1

Tried it out yesterday and found it aired up quickly. I don't have any experience with 12v compressors other than the cheap ones. This one is way better than the cheap models. The ARB is fairly compact and come in a tool box sized case. There is plenty of room in the case to hold hoses and other tools. We wanted the portable model so we can move it to other vehicles, though I'd love installed air if we ever get a new SMB.

Re: thinking of getting a new air pump

On the dusty trail my pump (and tank) get used a lot. As in one or two times a day. But not on tires. My wife hates a dirty van. So I installed a connector inside and she methodically blows out what I and two dogs track in..

She clamps the sleeping bag to the barn doors and blow out some serious crud. In Baja it was great.

If she's happy, we keep on rolling.

Re: thinking of getting a new air pump

Too funny I was talking to my wife about onboard air and mentioned being able to do that. We do that in our basement all the time so she loved the idea of being able to do it in the van too!
I would need a system with a tank to be able to do that I think .. 2.54 cfm is not going to work I think?
