ARB Air Compressor Review and Install for a Jeep Wrangler JK
After my Slime compressor died on the trail, I purchased ARB’s CKMA 12 compressor and installed it under the hood of my Jeep Wrangler. I also got ARB’s inflation tire accessory kit that comes with a hose and connectors, ARB’s tire inflator and EVO’s compressor mount that is specific for a Jeep JK. ARB compressor: ARB inflation kit: ARB inflator gauge: EVO mounting plate: The installation was quick and easy and took just over and hour and a half with basic hand tools. I am only using this compressor as a tire inflator, and will not be using it for air lockers. The compressor inflated one of my 32” tires from 20psi to 40psi in exactly 2 minutes which was very impressive and I am looking forward to quickly filling up my tires during the next trail adventure. Web: Facebook: Instagram: @trailrecon From ARB’s website: Permanently mounted, the range of ARB vehicle mounted compressors are water, dust, heat and shock resistant to withstand the rigours of off road travel. Each kit includes a full wiring harness with relay, multi position mounting bracket and pressure switch. An optional tyre inflation kit is available separately for selected models. Designed specifically for Air Locker and sealed for moisture and dust resistance, this compact on-board compressor comes with a full wiring loom for simplified installation and plug-in connectivity to Air Locker control solenoids. Despite being compact in size, the Air Locker Activation System is built from quality components for quiet operation and extra long life and is suitable for running on the 12V accessory supply for most 12V and 24V vehicles due to its low current draw.

ARB Airlocker Installation

Added An ARB One Gallon Air Tank To My ARB Dual Air Compressor
I can run airtools no problem with my CO2 Powertank, but the ARB compressor did not have the reserve capacity to run airtools. For filling up tires though, the ARB compressor rocks, and I do not waste any CO2 like with the Powertank. But I wanted to try running a few tools with the ARB compressor, so I bought the ARB one gallon tank. Just installed it today along with a fitting and 10" hose from ARB that goes from the compressor outlet to the new tank. It can run the drill OK, but it is still not as fast as the CO2 tank. The new tank will also help out for filling tires, as the compressor will not have to run as long when pulling the trigger on the tire inflator.
