        could you hook up an air horn to this

        • The ARB 12V Twin On Board Air Compressor could be hooked to a tank to use for air horns, however the compressor does not supply enough raw CFM to use an air horn directly.

        Hi: I'm really interested in this product but have the following questions: 1. In the space under the hood of my 2016 Rubicon, I see a number of brake lines and a distribution block---does this product sit on top of these lines or is there clearance? 2. Exactly what else do I need beside this product? 3. May I have the dimensions please? 4. Are there any other photos that might be helpful? I ask only because I noticed that a employee actually installed this product? Any help and additional data would be appreciated Dale

        • The ARB 12V Twin On Board Air Compressor is designed as a universal install product, meaning this can be installed on any vehicle, and it is up to the end user to determine a final mounting position. in the customer images, the picture shows this compressor is installed using a bracket from M.O.R.E. off road, however numerous mounting options are available. The M.O.R.E. bracket is linked below: This will include the compressor and mounting hardware, as well as the required wiring. You will need any components required for your use of the compressor, such as a tire inflation kit or fittings to adapt a hose for tire inflation, or the correct components required to trigger air lockers. We do not have any additional photos of this compressor installed as we do not have any current employees with this compressor on their Jeep. The compressor would be 4"H x 7.5"L x 10.8"W

        What is the warranty on this model? 12 months, 18 months??

        Would I need to use a pressure switch if I have it pump to a small onboard tank, or is there one integrated into the compressor itself?

        • We would recommend a pressure switch if using this for a tank as an added safety measure.

        Will the product work on other Jeep models besides ones mentioned? Why is it affected by under hood engine heat? If it won’t sir a horn directly, without a tanks, confirm it will air tires and tools without tank. I want to install under hood on the firewall of a 12 volt 1955 M38A1.

        • The ARB 12V Twin On Board Air Compressor is a universal fit compressor. We only test fitment for the Wrangler, and do not test for vehicles we do not sell parts for, such as your 1955 M38A1. This does not have issues with heat from under hood mounting, but will require a tank for tools and horn operation. This can air up tires without a tank.

            Terrible in so many ways

            I have several issues with this product. First, the location where you attach your air fitting is really small. There's no way to get a wrench in there to tighten the fitting down. I tried several fittings. I also bought the associated hose kit, and the fitting is way too large to tighten down with a wrench. Second, this compressor gets really hot. That in and of itself isn't an issue, except that the ARB hose can pop off its fitting when the pump gets too hot. I called ARB and they said not to use that hose attachment. They said they sell something else since the pump gets too hot and someone was burned by it. The guy I talked to at ARB recommended I NOT use their hose kit with this compressor. So, now I just wait long periods of time in between tire fills to allow the pump to cool. I really don't understand how other people are using this pump successfully.

            Works great!

            The compressor works as advertised. If you mount it under the hood just know that the heat from the engine will keep the compressor from working until the engine cools down. Under passenger seat is probably best.

            Plenty of inflation power. ARB quality

            Reliable ARB product that will ensure that you have the power to inflate any large tire quickly. I had a smaller one in my old vehicle that never let me down in 13 years of use.

            This thing is powerful. Will air my 35x12.5x16 tire from 10 to 31 lbs in under 90 seconds. I mounted it under the passenger seat of my JK wrangler with custom brackets. It had just enough wire leading to the battery, and more than enough for the switch line to get over to my A-pillar switch pod. The wiring from the factory couldn't be better/easier to use. Only downside is the heat generated; you need to really think through your location to make sure it's safe.

            Not well written

            Great compressor but has no instructions for using as on board for anything other than lockers. I have electric lockers and just wanted it for air (tools, tires and such) the wiring is not designed for it, the instructions are not, and nothing in the kit or the hose kit worked. Had to go to a hardware store to find and make fittings

            Amazing little compressor

            If you’re looking for a fast, heavy-duty, high-quality on-board air compressor than this ARB Twin compressor should be on the top of your list. Right out of the box you can tell that it’s a high quality piece that’s going to live up to the demands. The kit comes with everything to power and control the compressor but if you’re looking to install it under the hood, you’re going to need an aftermarket bracket. I used the one made by M.O.R.E, but if you have a 4-door you can install the compressor under the passenger seat with the Teraflex bracket. If you do plan on installing it under the hood and have a 2012 Jeep, then the space is really tight and you have to be careful of the A/C lines. The M.O.R.E kit comes with a split tube to help protect the lines but they still rest on the heating fins, so you need to keep an eye on it. Also, the height for the valve is tight, the M.O.R.E comes with a 90 degree ¼” NPT fitting to you can hook up a braided line to it, but the mounting position will require work in order to run an air hose. The compressor also comes with its own powering switch, but I connected it to an sPOD. If you want to connect to an sPOD you can streamline the wiring harness quite a bit and just isolate the purple wire. In terms of power, this thing is a little beast, I was able to fill my 35” duratracs from 14psi to 37psi in order 2 minutes. Considering that will be my main use for this compressor, I’m really happy.

            Awesome not so little compressor.

            It took me a while to do the wiring, but once it was all hooked up it ran perfectly. I am rolling on 35's and it aired one up from 15PSI to 40PSI in just under 2 minutes. It will definitely get some use. I may also add a air tank in the back to run small air tools.

            Flat Tire Piece of Mind

            I no longer worry about flats when I am out and about. Whether off road or on, if I puncture a tire it is a breeze to plug, fill, and keep going. It is an expensive option but since the ARB Twin is mounted under the passenger seat I know it is with me.
