    I was just getting ready to order the ARB Dual compressor and a 2.5 gallon tank to put where the spare tire resides. I started to dig into the specs of the compressor (4.65CFM AT 29PSI) and compare to other offerings. Sure there are more powerful units but they are also much more expensive.

    I found this company Air Zenith, They offer a 100% duty cycle compressor rated at 4.25CFM at 30psi, with a 200psi working pressure, so yes the compressor offers 10% less cfm than the ARB compressor but its highest current draw is 35A compared to the ARB unit at 56A.

    2nd Generation 200PSI OB2 Compressor Black

    The compressor Retails for $369, and they offer a kit with a 5 gal tank with required fittings for $525.

    What does everyone think, am I missing something obvious?

    Bang for the buck it's tough to beat the Puma. Have a 12V in my 81 and a 24V in the 74, love 'em.

    I have the Viair P400 and fills my four tire in like 10 minutes max if I had them at 15 psi. I have a system similar to what the Witsend self off the back cross member

    The ARB it's better than the Puma hands down .. ( had / have both ) but you pay that performance ..
