    I may have an extra air tank and was wondering, would I be able to hook this thing up to my existing compressor to double the air storage? Haven't got to look at it closely, but would it be as simple as adding a short hose between the two tanks?

    yep it will work
    But I add a one way valve , Well I guess it would depend on how it was plumbed up if used one tank for the front and the other for the rear. The I would use a one way valve.
