On Board Air

So I am almost ready to start my on board air project and i need some advice. Has anyone put a york compressor in the spot for the second alternator could go. And what size compressor are most of you running. I would like to be able to fill a 5 or 7 gallon tank pretty quickly. What CFM should I look for.

I don't have a York.....but my system is better than those 12volt air compressors.

I run a 115volt 2.5hp constuction air compressor,..and it is powered by a 10,000watt inverter......
.....so I can now also run anything that is 115v,..right out of my truck.

If you're looking for info on what York to get, check some jeep sites. Different Yorks are rated for different outputs. I don't know which ones to look for, but I know that info is out on various jeep sites. It seems most Jeeper's with Yorks seem to be quite happy with them. Air tools shouldn't be a problem with a York (well maybe sandblasting might be but I never heard of anyone using the air from their jeep to run a sandblaster!). I'm guessing you'll be putting in a tank somewhere as well?

I love the setup TANK but I want somthing a little smaller I am mounting the tank under the truck and it will mainly run Horns but I will plumb a Quick connect at the back near the Tailgate because I would like to be able to run simple air tools (ratchet, impact gun, maybe a cut off wheel but they use a lot of air.) I heard that horns will get about 2-3 blast form 5 gallons. It just needs to refill quickly.
