    Hey All,
    My on-board air compressor is capable of running 150psi but the ARB can't take that pressure. Has anyone found a good regulator for this or similar applications?

    Pressure is the only thing I am concerned about since the ARB uses small volumes of air.

    Here are a few that I think might work:

    http://www.controlair.com/regulators/850_860reg.html

    Will the small brass unit work????? That would be best.

    Has anyone seen the ultra-cheap units at Harbor Freight? I wonder if they will work...? I worry about blowing the gaskets out of the ARB with the cheap stuff tho.

    All thoughts welcome! /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    Thanks,

    Just go to home depot (or your local hardware store) and pick one up...

    I went ahead and bought the one from Home Depot.

    Now I need to adapt the ARB fitting to the regulator (my manifold off of the pump was cut for the ARB - english threads....?). What is the type/size of fitting that I need for the ARB side?
