Oasis OBA - Anyone have one

With the third row, LS engine and other mods going in, I wont have any space for my powertank shortly. And with 40's I need some real air. Anyone have an oasis setup? If so, where did you put it. I was alternatively thinking of piggybacking 3-4 VIAR 450's. Anyone run something like that?

I have the Extremeaire Magnum portable and the Smittybuilt one. For now it's just thrown in the back, but I'm looking for a place to mount it as well. My current plan is to re-locate the exhaust, then move the dual batteries into the space where the stock muffler sits, and use the existing battery space to mount my OBA setup. I'm still looking for a good place fro a tank on the 2012+ rigs.

A quick trip over to the Oasis defunct website make me think they are out of business.

Here's what I have, was the best I could find at the time.

Now back to a 2013 JKU Rubicon with "stuff", planning 37's with minimal lift.

I've tried them all... Jeeps are still the best. (0||||0)

So it is....

My search turned up http://www.oasis-off-road.com/, which is for sale. My mistake. Thanks.

I looked all over for these suckers a few months back and found nothing. I really like these units, except for the dainty cooling fan. I'd love to be able to install one of these underneath the body, and plumb an air intake into the rear taillight cavity or something, but I don't think the computer-style cooling fan could take the dirty environment. Mounting one of these in the cabin is a sure-fire recipe for deafness.

I would only use it at airing up, so the hood could be open to do so. I cant beleive no one here has one. They put out 8cfm at 90 psi, that is like a York at 3500 rpm's.

There are a couple on eBay right now. A new, continuous duty one looks to be about $1700. There's also a used one for $1100....

The continuous duty 12v DC compressor is around 1700 dollars give or take depending on who you order it from.

However, they are made in America and perform very well

Oasis is a York compressor powered by a 12 or 24 vdc motor , some people use a winch motor coupled to a York ....

I am debating the York, but I might have more mounting options with the Oasis. Both would need the engine on anyway.

I've been waiting for a york solution for the Pentastar, but never liked the ORO "direct mount" off the crank pulley. This seems like a viable alternative, if only I had a good place to mount it.
