    You don't provide specifications or installation instructions, which model is it so I can look for those

    • This ARB High Output Air Compressor is ARB's CKMA12 compressor, and I have attached a link below for the specifications. ARB does not supply installation instructions, as the compressor can be used and installed in various ways for various purposes.

    Where is a good place to mount this on a TJ, since there’s no aftermart bracket. Any ideas?

    • This item would need to have a custom mounting bracket made for each vehicle.

    Can I wire this directly to my spod? Or does it need a direct feed to the battery.. How many watts does it consume, so I can have an idea of how many amps to use with a spod Thanks

    • To ensure proper operation, following the manufacturer's installation instruction is suggested. Not doing so may void the item's warranty.

    Would this compressor work with my ARB front and rear lockers, and be able to fill up my tires? I know it will take a while since I have 40's, but will it still do the job?

    • The ARB High Output Air Compressor can be used for air locker applications. Inflating your larger tires will take longer than usual, but can be accomplished.

    What under hood mounting system is recommended for this unit or does the mount that it comes with work under hood?

    • Depending on the installation method you could use the included bracket to get it installed. Though we do offer alternative options for getting this mounted inside an engine bay. For the exact kit for your set up I recommend reaching out to an expert over the phone or chat.

      Easy Install - works well

      Installation in my 2012 JK was very easy, after ordering the EVO-1097 mounting bracket - perfect fit. Only hitch was that the threads on the air outlets are BSPT and I had to order an adapter to get to NPT. I did not use the provided switch, but instead hooked it up to my SwitchPro SP9100. A test on tire fill time resulted in 50 seconds to inflate from 25 psi to 37 psi on standard 32".

      Works Great!!

      I have the full setup in my jeep now, ARB Pump air hose setup and front and rear ARB lockers. It all works well, the pump seems to put out good volume and it runs the lockers perfectly. Its nice to be able to flip a couple switches and lock/unlock instantly.

      Works just like I need it to. I know nothing about wiring. But, through trial and error, I was able to get it mounted under the hood and connected to a switch system. It's soooo much more convenient compared to driving aired down to a close by gas station.

      ARB High Output Air Compressor

      Great product, pressurized 35” tires from 20 to 35 lbs in about 2 minutes. Mounted on the driver side above the steering column, it’s a tight fit but doable. I had to relocate the horn to make it fit. Installed in a 2015 JK.

      Using this for air locker setup and couldn't be more impressed with the overall quality. Comes with detailed wiring instructions. You will need to purchase a mount separately or fab one yourself to mount this where you'd like.

      Works great. A little difficult to install if under hood. Few brackets out there to purchase and even less room to try and access to install but with a little patience and effort can be figured out. Not a beginner project. Nice to have some wiring experience. Product is great. Works great.

      Plug and Play

      My previous ARB compressor lasted almost 15 years so I felt fairly comfortable replacing it with the newer design and better quality aluminum housing. Change a few connections, install, and ready to lock in and tackle the hills. Check back in a couple years and I'll confirm my opinion on this compressor.
