Help choosing on board air.

I will be running air lockers soon. So I will need a compressor. If I have to get one I might as well get something that can air up my tires to. I have 40" nitto's so I want something that will handle airing them up in a decent amount of time. I have narrowed it down to two options the ARB twin (for the simple fact that it will be easy to install) or the viair 2 on 2 setup. The are both about the same price I just want to here some experience from others using them.

Ton's, 40's, 6.4 Hemi

I run the dual viair 480c setup with a 2.5 gallon tank. I use it strictly for tires and it can run a impact in small burst.
I have the single arb for my lockers. It was way to slow for my 37's.
The viair airs up from 14 to 28 in about a minute a tire. Less if you let the tank get back to 200 psi before the next tire.

You smell that?
