VIAIRs Constant Duty Onboard Air System is a pre-packaged compressed air solution that provides a 100% duty cycle 450C compressor, 2.5 gallon air tank, and all components needed to install a working system capable of inflating tires.
Included parts: 2.5 gallon VIAIR air tank, 450C VIAIR compressor with overload protector, 35’ coil hose with tire chuck, dash panel gauge with on/off switch, pressure switch with relay (110 PSI on, 145 PSI off), reducer: 1/8” (F) to 1/4" (M), 1/4” quick connect stud (F), 1/4" quick connect coupler (F), 1/4" 175 PSI safety valve, 1/4" drain cock, (3) 1/4" compression fittings, 20’ 12 gauge wire with inline fuse holder, 4” strip of continuous grommet material, accessory airline and electrical connections.
I have purchased, and unpacked the kit. Next I need to find places to mount the compressor and tank. Maybe I should have considered all this prior to purchase, but figure the full size Bronco is BIG, and I should be able to find somewhere! I'm considering mounting the compressor in the engine bay, where the old jack used to reside (if it will fit), and mount the tank under the vehicle somewhere a rock can't destroy it. It would be REALLY nice if Viair had mounting locations for various vehicles on their web site, along with an additional parts list. I am looking forward to airing up my tires, running an air horn, and maybe in the future air lockers. I was excited to think that I could also use air tools, but concerned that this unit with 2.5 gallon tank may not have the power to run them well. I need to investigate furthur, maybe a Viair forum could be helpful?

1.0A little over priced for the performance
I bought this unit with the anticipation of being able to air up after of a day of wheeling faster than I had before with a $60.00 portable from Smitty Built but that just was not the case. At almost 6 times the cost it has fallen a little short to say the least. Like the other comments it is a little challenging to install, it would be nice if Viair had some suggestions on their web site. Honestly I would not recommend this unit given the price and its performance, it took about 25-30 minutes to air up four 33 x 12.50 tires from 18 psig to 35 psig.

This is a great kit at a great price! Installation required carefull thought and planning to get everything to fit nicely in my TJ. I found that the "everything you need in a one box" was only accurate if you mount the compressor and shut off switch directly to the tank. This is NOT a likely scenario for most installs. I had to buy a few more fittings to get everything located where I wanted. Once installed it worked like a charm. I've had it out several times now and it airs up all 4 tires reasonably fast. It's nice to flip the switch from inside the cab and start the tank filling as I approach the end of the trail getting a jump start on my buddies and their portable compressors. I would recommend this product to anyone.

Bigger Project to install than I expected but once it was done it is worth it.

5.0Great Compressor Kit!
This is a pretty darned good kit! The compressor is great - 150 psi, 100% duty cycle. The tank is 2.5 gallons, so it's enough to do most basic work. Plus, when it empties, the 100% duty cycle compressor won't (shouldn't!) burn up re-filling the tank. I have mine set up for filling tires/whatever, and powering an air horn, and it seems to be pretty capable for handling these tasks.
This compressor kit includes all you need in order to do a BASIC installation. This means, if you want the compressor mounted right next to the air tank, and to plug straight into the air tank with your output hose (no remote connection locations), this kit will be all you need. If you want to mount the tank under the truck, and the compressor somewhere else, you may end up needing additional fasteners, hose, wire, etc, etc. But, that's fine, because you can still use the fasteners and such included with this kit.
I debated giving this only 4 stars instead of 5 because you will likely have to purchase additional fittings and such, as mentioned, to mount this according to your personal desires onto your vehicle. But, after thinking about it, I figured that VIAIR couldn't include all of the additional hose, connections, wiring, etc to suit everyone's needs without making the kit cost a lot more. So, for the items necessary for a basic installation (or the for the basic components for your own custom installation), this kit is really nice.
Not sure the exact dimensions, but it's smaller than most tanks. I wanted the smaller tank. Works just as well. 150psi like a 4 gallon.

Can I run lockers and use this system to fill tires? Im looking for a all in one system that can activate my lockers and be used to fill tires.
Answer this question
Yes it will run the air lockers and pump tires up no problem. The only thing that will be needed is a pressure regulator. The Viair number 90150
Thanks for the inquiry Cowboy, the VIAIR Constant-Duty Onboard Air System part # V/A10007 I assume you mean the compressor, this can mount any way you'd like.
Which duty cycle is this product? The description says 100% but the specs say 33%? Which one is it?
Answer this question
Hello Justin, the VIAIR Constant-Duty Onboard Air System part# V/A10007 has a 100% duty cycle. Thank you for your question.
how resistant to water is this compressor? driving off road i often come across a water crossing or a mud hole.
Answer this question
Hello Jd, the VIAIR Constant-Duty Onboard Air System part# V/A10007 is definitely water resistant but its not water proof. If in case it gets heavily splashed or submerged, check the air filter and make sure its still in good dry shape. Thank you for your inquiry.
