    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.

    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.

    Does this compressor have a on-off switch or does it need to be routed to a rocker switch?


    • The compressor would need to be wired to a rocker switch, this and the wiringharness is included with the kit.

    Can this be used for both front and rear lockers as well as an air compressor to fill up tires?


    • The ARB High Output Air Compressor can be used for air locker applications. It can also air up 35-inch tires.

    I want to pair this with a air tank. Should I get a 150 or 200 psi tank?


    • This ARB High Output Air Compressor has a pressure switch at 90-100 psi, so a 150psi tank would work however, it would take a significant amount of time to fill the tank. The ARB 12V Twin On Board Air Compressor, item J101465, has a switch for 150psi and since it is a twin, it will fill the 150 psi tank much quicker.

    If you don't provide instructions on how to wire it are we suppose to install it ? Give us an if you put it here..this is how you do it. I'm sure there are common places in the engine bay for showing us on a VIDEO .


    • The ARB High Output Air Compressor is a universal compressor that can be used on any vehicle. Because of this their is not specific or preferred mounting location. We have seen these mounted in the engine compartment, under seats, and in the cargo areas. Wiring will be simple with the included wiring harness.

      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.
