On-board Air

I'm thinking about putting an on-board air system on my truck. I'm not sure what brand, size, constant duty, etc. I want it for tire inflation (I have 285/75/16), air tools, filling my whitewater raft, future rear locker, etc. I'm planning on putting it in the toolbox in the bed. Any suggestions? Thanks

I have been looking at the Viair systems, probably the 10008 model (dual compressors) or the 10007.

I was looking at the Viair systems too, probably the 10007. I was wondering if you could get away with the 10005 though. Anybody have any experience with these systems or other brands? Thanks

Oasis manufacturing makes an air compressor that will run a 1/2" impact without a tank. We have one on our experimental vehichle at work. It is a little pricey but give it a look. www.oasismfg.com

Im running an Extreme Outback compressor for my air ride kit and train horns. It flows a ton of air and has a 100% duty cycle. Downside is its loud as all hell....
