ARB Compact On-Board Air Compressor Kit - CKSA12

universal fit logo



At less than half the weight of other compressor kits, this system is ideal for competition vehicles, rock crawlers, or any other vehicle where a compact, light weight, and quick installing design is needed! The compressor features fully sealed components, pressure switch controlled air manifold system, hard anodized cylinder bore with carbon fiber piston rings, relocatable air filter assembly, ball bearing equipped rotating components, and the low current draw of 5 amps at no load and 6.5 amps at full load means it will run on the 12 volt accessory supply of most 12 volt and 24 volt vehicles.



great product

I bought this for my arb front locker. it did not come with all the parts needed so I had to chase the rest down. what a pain! Otherwise I love it.

Worth the money

I put this in a 87 4runner, and the install was easy and the harness made things even easier. Also 4wheelparts took care of me, and got me a spare part that was missing over night.

What is the duty cycle on this unit

Asked by Sabby from Monkland Ontario canada on

Hello Sabby, ARB does not provide a duty cycle. The did offer this "It's small enough to fit into even the tightest space and quiet enough to mount in the cab. It has enough output to air up four 35" - 37" tires in a single duty cycle and typically airs up a 35" tire in just over two minutes." Thank you.

Will this work for a rock crawler, 44 x 18.5 tires, if I plug a tire? Only run around 8 to 10 pounds in them.

Asked by ExpensiveDreams from Alabama on

Hello ExpensiveDream, Provided you are not in a hurry, it will work for you. If you are looking for something faster we suggest a Powertank.
