2018 JLUR Rear Cargo ARB Compressor Installation
I’m very happy with this compressor. I didn’t want to install under the hood and instead chose to mount in the rear cargo well. I had to rebuild the wiring harness to utilize the factory switch bank with the pressure switch but after consulting ARB directly and patching the cables to length to reach the battery the setup worked perfectly. I was able to air all four 33” tires from flat to 38 PSI in 10 minutes.Helpful (3)

Finally have on board air.
I was using a portable air compressor to air up after a trail run. When I damaged my Rubicon electric sway bar controller and balked at the $2k replacement cost, I installed an air activated sway disconnect system. But that required an air supply. Of course, ARB was the go-to for onboard air. Easy to install and hook up. Now my sway bar works again and I have onboard air available for air-ups.Helpful (1)

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".Helpful (3)

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.Helpful (4)

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. http://store.arbusa.com/Assets/PDF/compressorTechnicalSpecifications.pdf
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.
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. https://www.extremeterrain.com/arb-high-output-dualCKMTA12.html
I wanted to mount compressor under the hood on my 4.0l 2003 tj will this unit fit on the metal plate located below the master cylinder on Lf area . I want unit that I can mount under the hood thanks
Hello, unfortunately we did not test fit the ARB High Output Air Compressor (87-17 Wrangler YJ, TJ, & JK) on that location. But the measurements are, 5.7 Inches in Height, 7.5 Inches in Length and 3.9 Inches in Width
The CFM would be 6.16.
This item would need to have a custom mounting bracket made for each vehicle.
To ensure proper operation, following the manufacturer's installation instruction is suggested. Not doing so may void the item's warranty.
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.
The ARB High Output Air Compressor can be used for air locker applications. It can also air up 35-inch tires.
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.
The ARB High Output Air Compressor can be used with some air horns, depending on the requirements of the air horn kit.
Hello, From the ends of the wires that connect to the battery to where the compressor gets plugged in is 78.5”.
