        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.

        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.

            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.

            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.

            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".

            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.

            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.

            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.
