    I used to have some good links and bookmarks, but since my laptops crashed (yes, 2 of them) I lost them all, and am slowly getting some back.

    Stu Olsen has some write ups (on air, he has a LOT of write ups), but more on the York and other style compressores, howvever, he has a lot of great write ups!

    That's huge! Most guys I know are running 2 or 3 gallon tanks.

    For trail repairs, this is plenty to run an impact gun. The A/C compressors fill the tanks quick, and you're not running the air tools constantly like in a garage, so having a big tank isn't really necassary.

    I've also seen guys use the bumpers and roll cages for 'tanks'.

    Biggest thing is, to make sure you have a pressure relief valve!

    i was wondering the same thing when i started thinking about it. the thought crossed my mind about mounting two tanks. one on each wheelwell. maybe 5 gallons total. not sure if it would work but just a thought. what year jeep do you have? do you have the sanden compressor? im not sure what my rubi has in it but i dont think its the sanden.
