Air Compressor Recommendation

Does anyone know a decent compressor that will inflate/deflate wk2 tires pretty quick and be on the smaller, less expensive said.

Anyone have any experience with this one.

I have a real cheapo slime one now, but it's extremely noisy and slow to inflate.

Re: Air Compressor Recommendation

I have no experience with that unit.
I have heard good things on both speed and quietness on this unit below.It's a little more up there in price.You get what you pay for I guess.

I have two el cheapo portable compressors that do the job but only just and slow. I now have an ARB compressor installed and I can tell you they are light years ahead in quality and performance. See Compressors .

Re: Air Compressor Recommendation

Thanks for the info all. That Kensun unit looks good, little more than I wanted to spend but probably worth it. Want something pretty quick and quiet.

Re: Air Compressor Recommendation

Hey Aqua-

Don't forget about the 115-Volt Auxiliary Power Outlet the JEEP has.
Not sure if you have one, but this may open up more models of Air Compressors.

Let us all know how well the unit works when it arrives.

I purchased this one based on reviews, although I haven't actually used it yet:

Oh that one hooks up to the battery. I hadn't thought about that type.

I plan on taking the Jeep on the beach next summer so I want something that will air up pretty quick and be kinda quiet.
