For the added convenience of being able to air-up or air-down your tires to accommodate various types of terrain, a Smittybilt Air Compressor is the most powerful compression unit in its class with a 1/3 horsepower oil-less direct drive motor and a 30 amp inline fuse.
I received this as a gift and haven't used it while off-roading yet, but in using it to top off my tires the compressor itself seems to work great. It provides more than enough airflow for my 31x10.50s and should work well for larger tires. I'm concerned about the quality of the coiled hose, and I don't like that the special fittings don't allow the use of "off the shelf" accessories such as air chucks or other hoses. Otherwise, I'm happy with it as a convenient and go-anywhere air source.

Need at least 2" of clearance!
I have TPMS valve stems and the fill nozzle will not squeeze between them and rim. You need a solid 2" + of space to fit the straight/screw on connector onto your valve stems. If they just had a simple 90 degree bend, it would work on everything. The hoses and connectors are their own design so it will require me removing it all and replacing with normal connectors/hoses.

Works as advertised
This air compressor can be used for a variety of things, but my main use is allowing me the freedom of airing down the tires on the trail and being able to air them back to normal pressure for the return home. It's also pretty handy to air up low tires on any of my vehicles without having to bring them to the garage air system.

I use this compressor for airing up my tires after offroading. The plastic hose kinked on the first compressor but I was able to warranty it with no problems, thanks 4WheelParts. The air valve screws onto the tire valve stem, which makes it slightly inconvenient. There is a gauge on the hose, but I find it hard to read and use my own gauge to check the pressure.
