Has anyone installed a QuickAIR2 or 3 on their truck? If so, is it worth buying? I think it would be convenient to have an onboard air compressor, so when you air down, it will be easy to air back up.

I have not installed either one, but I have had the opportunity to use the QuickAir2 after running around with a huge group down at TruckHaven. It did okay for airing up, but the duty cycle is failry low at only 20% so we should have waited 20-30 minutes between trucks.

The QuickAir3 will output a ton more air,but the pressure is fairly low so if you ever want to run air tools using a reserve tank, you can't.

Also, anything over 5 gallons of reserve tank volume will void thier warranty.

If you think you will ever need more air, more pressure and more volume, check out a continuous duty compressor. There are two fairly popular ones. The first is the Thomas (same as that used on the Hummers) but it runs $500. The next one is called the ExtremeAir. It is $379 and available at http://www.extremeoutback.com/catalog.htm and scroll to the very bottom. When I can affor done,I will be getting one of these (if no the engien driven one they also have)

I have a small air system installed on my truck, it's made by Hadley, (for air horns). I use it for airing up my bike tires when low. It came with a .5 cf tank, 130psi shut off. I'm sure it'll inflate my truck tires, (take forever though) I've considered replacing the my air compressor with the Quick air III, until I read a post on another dodge site about the tompson air compressor (the one Jason mentioned) I think I'll be saving for one of them.....
It is nice though, having air on board. My jeep has a engin driven compressor and it works real nice! If your interested, I have the name of the place that has the tompson compressors. They also have air horns! Big and small.....
Let me know via e-mail or this posting

Jason, I just checked out the link you sent to tunis, for the air compressor,I like that compressor! Much cheaper in cost than the tompson's also. Probably easier to get too!

It is the one I will be buying...unless the guy would like to advertise on the site <IMG SRC="/board/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif">

I like the CFM and pressure. However, I also like their A/C conversion they have for the same price (right above it on the same page). Twice the CFM at high pressure are well. I know where I can buy a serptine/v-belt combination pulley for the alternator and I would just need to have a bracket made. That would be a nice setup!

Thanks for the info guys! Yeah, i'll probably go with the ExtremeAir also, and it's about the same price as the QuickAIR units, but better!!!
