Hey guys i posted my welcome post and im always modding my jeep so i figured id share my last mod.
I did a on the cheap on board air to fill my tires up after a day of wheeling or incase i forget to air up, or find a damsel in distress
so i went to my local canadian tire and picked this up
this was the only thing my store had in stock. i specifically was looking for something that you can set the air pressure and walk away. i didnt read any reviews before i purchased so here goes nothing.
first thing i did was tear apart the compressor to see what was all in it.
looked fairly simple to be honest so i tore apart the jeep
i mounted the compressor into the tailgate of the jeep
and mounted the screen in the back panel
this is what i assume to be the pressure sensor, i had to extend these wires to the controller, also had to extend the power wire to the compressor
put a bulkhead brass fitting through the gate and put the plastic cover back on.
i purchased the daystar lower dash panel for inside the cab and ordered some switches (not here yet so not connected) to power this compressor
Heres the final setup being used for the first time to do some time trails and make sure it works. im using a 20 foot coil hose
so if anyones curious on how it works. my current tire set up is 305/70/16 nitto mud grapplers. i aired the tire down to 15 psi. (which the digital screen agreed with after i plugged it it) set the module to 30 psi and hit start. 7 minutes later the compressor turned off and tire was full!!
as far as i can tell this system is completely upgradable, so i plan on installing either a second compressor or a larger on in place of this one.
feel free to share thoughts or ask questions. ill answer best i can
