    I want to add some sort of on board air system. However I can't decide if it is worth the hassle of making a bracket for the york, or if I should just pay the money and get a quick air 1, 2, or 3. Is the york really worth the hassle? I want to run air tools at home and on the trails with it. I am going to add some sort of tank either way I go. Any input is appreciated. Thanks!

    In my opinion the York or any converted A/C compresser
    will work better than the Quick Air. We put a A/C unit on
    a small block (one off a toyota i think ) with brackets
    from Alan Grove and a tank out off a big truck, it works better than we planned its alot faster than Quick Air or ARB by far.


    Lost? i'm not lost i'm just disorienated

    With the A/C comp style you don't have to drag the stupid thing to the welding suply shop every once in a while to fill it up. I know I would never rember to have it filled.
