    Got a 105 PSI for my setup (ARB limits the total pressure - damn).

    <a target="_blank" href=http://www.extremeoutback.com>www.extremeoutback.com</a>

    The switch is on the bottom of the page of the online catalog.

    I purchased the extreme pump here also.

    My pressure switch is a Square D switch. You can check some of them out at <a target="_blank" href=http://www.onboardair.com>www.onboardair.com</a>. I got mine at a hardware store for 20 bucks. It switches on at 90 and off at 125 psi., and has an unloader port to bleed off the air on the compressor.

    I've been looking in my hardware stores around here, none seem to have it. What section was it in? The counter guys stare at me like I have 10 heads, then try to sell me the safety pop-off valve.

    Yeah, I got the same look from a bunch of people before I found the right store. I can't tell you how many people wanted to sell me a pop off valve, or a one way valve. The bigger hardware stores (lowes, and home depot) had no clue what I was talking about. I found a small mom &amp; pop place that sold em' with the air compressor stuff. They had to order the one I wanted, but they could get it. I have the square-D part number at home and I'll try to post it tonight.

    <a target="_blank" href=http://www.grainger.com>www.grainger.com</a> is where I got mine and it has a movable differential that is 30 degrees from on to off. Max I think is 150 psi. Cost like 14 dollars and I am very pleased. Has a place for a dual circuit and everything. It is great. Part # is 5B419
