So now that Ive got the money I want to buy a compressor so Ill have air for after the trail. I know a guy that runs this compressor

and loves it because he airs his 32's up in like 10 min from 15psi. It dosent really bother me how long it will take, I just dont want to be there all day. So would i be better with that compressor, or this one,

Down the road eather one I get will become my OBA system with a tank and everything thing you need. But for now which one would be a better buy? and im on 32's as well.

I've got a version of the red one, Costco was carrying them for a while. I've been using it for about 2 1/2 years so far an it works really well. 31's from 10 to 35 psi in about 3 1/2 minutes.

Any reason you dont want to use your sanden? Mine beats the guys I have wheeled with running electric compressors by about 1 tire.

There should be one bolted to your jeep as we speak.
Sanden = Stock XJ air compressor
York= Much larger compressor off 70's vehicles, and the mack daddy of oba, Can be expensive if you buy from kilby, but i got one from the junkyard for $20, and a friend gave me another. Trying to make the bracket however has put the york on hold.

In the meantime the Sanden does everything i have asked of it (so far)
