33" is stock sized?
No, 35” is stock sized. The one I got was just less expensive and rated for 33’s. It does work, probably not as fast as bigger / better ones.
Something else to consider would be to make your own. Get a good compressor, find a decent box, and wire it up with some welding cable of appropriate size with some gator clips for the battery. Could also run some leads somewhere on the truck.
Or use the outlet in the truck (is it rated for the right amps?).
You could if it is rated high for the compressor and the compressor you chose was AC.
Just for reference my ARB is fused for 80 amps.
I have the Viair 400P. Aired up from 15 to 35. No more than 15 minutes, all four tires.
Gassed up, checked the oil, and got something to eat. Ready to roll!
VIAIR 400 seems viable
This must be the way.
This will not be popular here. About 15 years ago, a wheeling buddy turned me onto one you can get from pep boys. The air filter got ripped off, probably during the 1st year, it was stored in toolbox, bounced around for years and still works. Aired up everything up to 42" tires.
Multiple people were always using it. Certainly not the fastest, but based on the research he did at the time, it was one of the best flowing units for the price. We didn't pay attention to the duty cycle either, never had an issue. It will get pretty hot though. lol. For occasional use going from 15-35 psi, it will be fine. It clamps onto the battery, just start the motor and let it go.
Volts times amps equals watts
746 watts is a horsepower
Starting ar 110 makes sence
