    I logged on real quick to let people know this EXACT pump I have and reccomend has now surfaced for sale at my local SoCal Costco.. that means it may be in yours.. they were hard to find and going away, but there were a hundred at my Costco as of yesterday...

    as for the ? about it holding up.... it has been awsome! been using it ever since, in the engine bay, no issues, still works like I just installed it.

    Is that the same item that I am looking at on Costco.com: http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product.aspx?Prodid=11196210&search=air&Sp=S&Mo=2&cm_re=1-_-Top_Left_Nav-_-Top_search&Nr=P_CatalogName:BC&Ns=P_Price|1||P_SignDesc1&N=4001192&whse=BC&Dx=mode+matchallpartial&Ntk=All&Dr=P_CatalogName:BC&Ne=4000000&D=air&Ntt=air&No=0&Ntx=mode+matchallpartial&Nty=1&topnav=&s=1

    if that link doesn't work it is item #173692, $39.99; "Cyclone High Volume Portable Air Compressor", claiming 150psi max and 30 liters/min.

    Costco item is model ms-1054

    Bought one of these compressors at costco. Looked at the one at pepboys. The difference is pepboys is a model ms-1050 and makes no claim of duty cycle. Costco model claims 100% duty cycle @ 73 degrees. Costco one is 45.99. Box has picture of women airing up fj40 right rear mud tire. Check it out.

    I mounted one under the hood of my 80 series by drilling a hole through the rubber feet and bolting through that with a washer on the head. It gives a little less vibration into the truck and it was easy to do.

    I bought one at my Costco last month. It is a very nice little compressor. The plastic air intake is cheap but the rest of it appears well built. :beer:

    this post is old.. but here goes..
    I didn't see anything at costco here in O.C. today. They had a huge set-up, including tank, but not this small one. Do these still exist? Anything better now? Why no tank? Do you have a dual-battery?
