    I store my 25' air hose under my passenger front seat. I also have one of those nylon recoil hoses that i keep in an old military ammo box behind my front driver seat along with various 4x4 hub sockets and also all my air hose attachments such as tire gauge, air chuck, and also my impact gun.

    Sure you can. A york 210 will provide more than enough air for that.

    I run one off mine with no problem. York and a 6 gallon tank. Die Grinder gives it a workout, but I haven't tried anything that wouldn't run. As to the hose - 50' hose on the rack when off road and coiled hose in the spare tire area the rest of the time.

    My tire is on the floor of the K5. I coiled the air hose up and put it in the wheel
    and zip tie to the holes in the rim. I hope this makes sence.

    I have a 210 and about 10 galoons worth of tanks. My pressure switch is set at 85 to 125 and I can run anything with no problem. For my winch and the OBA I have a hand throttle hooked up. The first time I used it the air got really hot and burned up my air filter. Anyways, find a 210 rig it up and be happy.

    Oh yeah, the hose. I have a 25 foot rubber hose and one of those 1/4 25' yellow self coilers in the tool box. I will try to post some pictures.

    Run disconnects front and rear, and I use one of the plastic coiled hoses.

    In the pic you can see one of my couplers to the right of the license plate.

    I know this has been covered before... But, in what applications would I find the York 210 compressor? I'm ready to hit the yards and get OBA set up asap!

    Mid 70's volvo's are good candidates. Follow the link trail starting at the tech article, you'll eventually find the manual and how to identify them.
