Any have the ExtremeAir onboard?

I'm having the Extreme Air Magnum compressor installed with the 4 gal. tank and the associated plumbing and two quick disconnects, one outside and one inside. Anyone have any experience with this unit?

I've always used the QuickAir on my previous vans, so know nothing on the Extreme Air. I was going that way myself, but since I needed a winch I went with the new Warn 12,000 lb. PowerPlant which includes an air compressor. This baby REALLY puts out the air and I'm very happy with it. You can find them on line for $2k. Not cheap, but if you need a winch and air.... One drawback, not setup for a tank. I've not needed the tank with the little air tool use and airing up tires I've done to date.
Food for thot-

Scatter -

Do you have the Warn PowerPlant in the Aluminess/Trojan bumper? If so how does it fit? Any problems getting it in there?

Yeah, I have it in the Aluminess bumper. Drops right in place. Dave (of Aluminess) has just made a different cover that fits the new winch. I highly recommend the winch - and the Aluminess bumpers too.

Well, I'd sure like to post a photo, but don't have. or know how to, put a photo on a web site and then paste it in my post.
But, just remembered, a friend is coming for a visit today and his son is a computer guru. I'll have him hold my hand and get it set up.
Photo to be posted!!! Stand by....

Well, I think I have this photo thing worked out.

Here is a shot of the front of the van with Aluminess bumper and Warn PowerPlant winch/compressor.


Here is a top view.


Here's a shot level from the front.

You can see that the winch sticks up above the bumper where all the other winches are below the bumper line. With this winch, you have to get the new cover from Aluminess with a hump in it to cover the winch.
I haven't noticed any cooling problems the the winch there and that's without the streamlined cover.

Looks good, Scatter, and pretty handy, too. Where is the winch controller plug on that thing? Is the control box elsewhere?

The winch controller plugs into the top on the left. You can kind of make out the rubber cover for it in the photo.
Other then that, everything is contained in the winch itself.
Really puts out the air too. It takes my 315's from 25psi to 50psi in one minute! Only drawback is that it really can't be used for lockers or to keep a seperate tank filled. The compressor will only run with the controller plugged into it. I don't find that a problem as the compressor will run air tools the way it is and I don't have a locker - yet. I'm looking into the OX unit as I'm not too fond of the ARB. They work great till the develope an air leak in one of the seals. Then ya gots to pull out the pot and do the whole thing again. I haven't seen a lot of failures, but enough to make me gun shy. Personal preference.
