    Will this be able to fit inside the engine bay of a 2013 wrangler, and be able to power a train horn? Will it be safe to be stored in the engine bay? And if so, is there a way to mount it directly in the engine bay?

      Works great!

      So far I've used it 3 times. Each time all four 35 inch tires were aired up in under 15 minutes. From 10 psi to 50. My only complaint is, the gauge that comes with it is off by 5 psi.

      Fills up 35s very quickly.

      So, this compressor is bigger than you think and it’s just barely too long to fit sitting longways in a 2-door JK trunk. That’s the only minus for me but since it is specific to my overcrowded trunk, I didn’t subtract any stars for that. What it does do ver well is move a truly massive volume of air into your tires. I can go from 10-30 psi in my 35” tires in about a minute which (for those of you who run larger tires can attest to! is impressive. I believe it pushes the most volume of any compressor short of the ARB twin which is the only thing I could possibly say I’d rather have but at like 1/3 the price, the Smitty is the winner for me. It doesn’t get too hot either and after filling all four tires after the trail, I can put it right back in the bag and go on my merry way. I ended up buying a new hose with different fittings so I could hook up my arb Tire inflator but have otherwise made no modifications. Love this compressor, regularly recommend it to people on the trail.

      Good for what it does but..

      It's good for what it does but the connections are proprietary to Smitty built. In other words the male and female connectors only work with what comes in the box. If you have a crimp the cheap hose you're going to have to be handy and modify the connection to a new hose. Not a reason to not choose this compressor just a pain in the butt Smitty built should have disclosed.

      Great compressor so far

      I have only used it a few trips but it works awesome. Way more power than my old twin cylinder. It is a very beefy motor way more heavy duty than any others I've had. It puts out nice volume and the motor stays cool. The hose gets hot but not the motor or compressor. I recommend this. I air up4 33's from 14 to 32 lbs in just a few minutes.

      Solid buy

      Bought this to use on my beach Jeep. Easy to stow, powerful and airs up my 35x12.5x20's from 25psi to 35 in just a couple of minutes. Does get hot but any compressor I've used before does. Highly recommend, great with floats and other beach stuff.

      Love it!!!

      Love this compressor. Bought a smaller one somewhere else and it took 40 minutes to get my Jeep tires from 15psi to 35 psi. Bought this and used it, took 8 minutes max to do the same thing. Will definitely make it easier to go on the beach this summer.

      Awesome!

      This is a great compressor! It is able to inflate the wife's jeep and mine from ~15 to 30 PSI in under 30 minutes. It does get hot but that is common with all compressors. It is bigger and heavier than I was expecting. Will buy another one when I have the money.

      Air compressor that works in minutes.

      I used the air compressor up in Big Bear CA deflated my tires to 15 PSI's fill it back up to 32 PSI's and it works great. I have 35" tires and it took about 3 minutes per tire to fill. I love it and would recommend it to other off road adventurers.

      great compressor for the cost

      purchase this item to have an inexpensive on board air works great although it gets hot when run for more than 20 minutes. I will give it 5 stars if I don't have to wait a while to let it cool down before packing it up. overall this is a great buy.

      I have to say that as always extreme terrain gets your order out quick. This compressor is a time saver. I took all 4 of my 35" tires from 17 psi to 35 psi in under 5 minutes. This works great and is well built.
