I feel funny about it, but here I a spent all this cash on the lockers and now I feel like I am budget cutting all the support accesories.
I got the compressor like I said earlier from a friend out of an RV, so it should be strong enough for the lockers. So that was $0.00 in cost, I have the 2.5 gallon air tank which I got from work which also cost me $0.00. so basically I just need to buy the moisture traps and another regulator for the air tank as well as the air lines.
Do you think though it would be too much overkill to put a moisture trap inline between the compressor and tank, and then another one between the tank and lockers? I really don't any condensation building up and then getting into my diffs.
How did you fab up your own tanks? I had thought about that but wasn't sure the best way. I really wanted to mount the tank under the bed in the spare tire position, but my tank is too big and would hang down further than I want, so if I could build a "low profile" tank and get a greater volume out of it, I would love to do that instead.
As for setting up the intake for the compressor, I already took care of that. I got a valve cover breather which was the same size as the intake, one hose clamp later and the intake is filtered, ready to go
I also already figured on a 20 amp relay for the compressor. I think after this mod though, I am going to have to seriously look into a duel battery set up, which I was going to hit you up for the plans. I like the way you were able to use to Odesseys in place of the stock battery. But I am definitely taxing my electrical system as it sits stock now. I already have a set of Pro Comp lights in my bumper, an after market white face gauge set up (low amps but still) and now the compressor. I also already have my rock lights. But it is too cold up here right now to get outside to work on anything unneccesary as rock lights. (13º this morning when I walked out the door for work)
So with the added compressor, the six sets of lights and a winch in the near future, I think two batteries are definitely going to be needed!
