If it's about Power Wagons, this is where it'll go.

Yes. Dismounts in a couple minutes, still portable with quick connect on original jumper cables.

Thanks for inspiring this mod!!! :notworthy:
It's out of the way, yet easy to use when I need it and doesn't take up any tool box space, except for hose/accessory storage.

Any idea if the Viair 400P fits in the RAMBOX?

I've read good things about the various MasterFlow compressors out there, like the MF-50, and the 1089, which is a jumbo version of the MF-50. They put out a new kit recently w/in the last year called the M240, it's a compressor & accessories built into a .50Cal ammo can:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00VROSS ... PDKIKX0DER

It's a 2.18cfm, but 50% duty cycle compared to 40% like most others. The Smittybuilt has the highest volume rating at 5.65cfm.

Smittybuilt 2781: 5.65cfm, 40% D.C, 1/3HP, 30A fuse, $156
MF-1078: dual piston, 3.18cfm, 40%D.C., 45Afuse, $149
M240: 2.11cfm, 27pc kit, ammo can, 50%D.C., $199
Viair 400P: 2.3cfm, 33%D.C., 40A fuse, $215
Viair 450P: 1.8cfm, 100%D.C., 40A fuse, $256
ARB CKMP: 2.6cfm, ?%D.C., ?A fuse, $325
I have the MF 1050. Thing runs like a champ. And its 47 bucks. Probably not the fastest, but it screws on so I'm doing other stuff anyway...

I carry mine in the Ram Box.

Of course, I can't remember off hand if I have the Viair 400 or 300....! Dang, if memory is not the first thing to go... I forget what was!

I used to have a Viair 400c mounted in a .50 Cal ammo can. It also contained a 25'air hose, 15' power cable with 50AMP quick disconnects. This made it nice and portable and fit the RAMBBOX nicely. For Christmas, my wife got me the Viair Heavy Duty OBA Kit (400C, 2.5 gal tank), so I decided to rebuild my old compressor and mount both compressors and air tank in the passenger RAMBOX. While I was at it, I plumbed in my airbags and added an in cab control paddle switch and gauge for the airbags. The two compressors are fast and I like it so far.
