    ^ Good points. I think the stock rover tank is ~ 2.5 gallons. I was tired of making my compressor do ALL the work running as a compressor-only set-up. I will have to experiment with getting four 265/70-16's up from 22 lbs to ~ 50 lbs. With the compressor only, I was squatting next to each tire for a number of minutes. Air lockers don't need that much PSI... I don't know what it is, but certainly not 150 psi. Don't have lockers (yet).

    I actually thought about getting another stock tank and mounting it underneath in the stock Rover spot. Probable over-kill, but lots of capacity if I ever get 33's.

    I agree on the space thing. Every square inch is precious. I am still finding a final resting place for my spare tire. I don't want it on the roof or in the stock spot (driver's side load space). currently located behind passenger front seat. May end up in load space, with drawers around it for the bed. I'm not that into a RTT due to weight (most are ~ 130 lbs!).

    Air lockers should see about 75-80 psi. I charge the tank to 150 and regulate it down. I can run my lockers just about all day on one charge of the tank.
    While I was experimenting with my AC compressor on board air I used that little silver tank for my air lockers. I could turn them both on/off about 4 times before it needed to be recharged.

    Pimp My Pump!

    Turns out the new fan I got has this purple glow-thing happening when it gets energized.

    Kind of a Fast & furious look...? Cheese? Very possible.

    Also installed my cross-braces.

    Only thing left is to sew-up my canvas cover with the pockets for accessories built-in.

    That's a SouthDown snorkel hose, but yes I have Sparco hood pins.

    Putting the finishing touches on the project for now. Here is the way we cover it all up, starting with with my old Pfaff 130:

    Went to the fabric store and bought 1/2 a yard of brown Sunbrella. Then mated it to a stretch of canvas, had the upholstery shop hammer in a couple of snaps and:

    Not done yet. Next bit is to fashion up a handy tool/accessory holder pocket thingy to ride on the side of all this.
