    Which on-board compressed air system/tank would you recommend?
    Thanks.

    Give a search in 40 series, this has been hashed over quite a bit.

    Get a Powertank. Once you get a trail only rig, you won't be airing up and down all the time. I have not aired my tires up in the last 2 years.

    I keep the powertank for emergencies.

    Get a full kit and don't forget the tube brackets.

    Marlin Crawler is an official TLCA supporter, prices are great and it would be great if you told him you heard about him on IH8MUD and Toyota Trails.

    so you can fill up 40 33 inch tires with that on a full tank?

    I think I just found my next purchase

    It is compressed CO2. It cost me $10 to fill it.

    I have even run air tools on a full tank for a long Birfield change on the trail.

    If the price of a power tank system puts you off and you aren't into pretty there is a choice. Go to a local welding supply house and buy a CO2 tank. 15# should run $100, if you plan to run tools pop for the Superflow regulator. Otherwise a standard air regulator works fine. That's what most the people I know who use CO2 do. The clamps and brackets might be worth money since a full cyclinder is pretty heavy, not something you want moving around.

    Be aware the tanks are swap outs. That is, you bring in an empty and they give you a different full tank. They are butt ugly and beat up. Should work with my Cruiser. :D
