    Default air compressor

    I want a small air compressor for my rig but not one of the 10 dollar ones that break after 3 uses. But I dont want one that costs 200 $ either.

    What do you plan on using the compressor for? Air tools? Just to inflate a tire?

    the first thing I always do to a truck is get marine battery terminals! That way you can add on all sorts of gadgets! Then you can get a acc. jack that is weather proof and mount it under the grill someplace or under the hood! You can get both of these things from any parts store!
