Default Warn Air Compressors...?

Anyone heard any reviews about these?

Haven't heard anything about those...Looks like they have some pretty good power and maybe a good duty rating.

I've got the Viair 440P which seems to do a fine job. I also have the CO2 tank now from the group/sale offered last year...CO2 is fast but the Viair never runs out

What is your planned use? Just to air up the tires or are you planning to run tools etc?

I have CO2 right now, but yeah, it does run out at inopportune moments. Like in the parking lot after Elephant Hill.

I'm probably not in the market for this right now -- my plans for a lift and tires will be my main focus.

But here's my curiosity: it seems that many members have expended much energy putting together an engine-driven compressed air system. I'm just wondering if some of these new systems offer the same amount of CFM and pressure. Someday I'd like to replace my CO2 bottle with a system that won't run out of air, that I could use for tools. Might that future system be electric?

On the Warn, 20cfm @ 0 psi is nothing to get exited about, (my air mattress blower will do that.) I'm surprised they didn't bother to at least give a flow rating at 20-30psi.

I'm at the 2.5" OME now. I want to fit 315s, so a new lift is in my future.

I'm currently at the OMEJ front, heavy rear and 315's. It fits easily. So you are at heavy fronts and medium rears?

Hell I'm make you a package deal, near new 315's and springs
