    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

    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.

    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.

      Nice compressor

      went on easy once I got the mounting bracket would have been a nightmare without that. Runs great looking forward to using it soon.

      Compressor

      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.

      Quality

      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.

      GREAT ADD ON

      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.
