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.Helpful (5)

Great product! Quiet and quick. Mounted under seat with mount also available. When istalled the seat will need to be removed. Highly Recommend.Helpful (9)

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.Helpful (10)

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.Helpful (8)

It's kind of a pain to get wired in if you mount it under the seat but other then that it works great!Helpful (10)
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: https://www.extremeterrain.com/more-arb-dual-mount-arb07.html 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.
This item is designed as a universal install product. As such, it is up to the end user to determine a final mounting position so we would not be able to confirm fitment for your suggested mounting location.
