Shep, When I bought my ARB comp. in a box, it came with the quick connect fittings. It is now mounted permanantly under the bonnet and the hose is stored in the truck.Nil Taurus Excretus

Shep the air lines are all standard fittings, they will srew into tany type of QD that you prefer to use! If you just take the line etc in to Total Tools or Repco or any good tool store and they will be able to match you up a set, ie a Female for the compressor and a male for the hose end. You might also like to fit the same to the other end so you can use different attachments, ie pump, air duster anything!!

Shep

I use all standard fittings on my air system (including tank) best to go to a pnumatics supplier/engineering supplier and get good quality fittings that wont rust.
Make sure you work out everything you want it to do and get it all in one hit, so you get a good price and set it up properly.

Cost me about $200 to set up with all the hoses and fittings to pump up tyres, test pressure, link air systems and equalise tyre air pressures between tyres and vehicles when I need to (eg If one vehicle has too low pressures and one has too high I can fill the low tyres with the too high pressured tyres without using compressor) have a high velocity air blower and be able to fill my air tank from a servos air system.
Super Cheap have a very basic kit but are not standard fittings (more of a pain than anything) and seem like they will rust for about $40

Hope that helps

Why not fit the compressor under the bonnet, then run a permenant fixed air line to the rea, then plug the air line into it when required.

With a switch on the dash to start the compressor you don't have to lift the bonnet at all, the hose needs to be long enough to reach the front wheels, and if you tow a trailer it will reach the wheel no worries.

I just bought an ARB comp. I noticed 2 models available, the one in the low $300s had a fixed hose and no pressure guage, and the one in the high $300s had the quick connect and a VDO guage. I think the quick connect hose alone is about $50. Compare that against a price from Pirtek to modify what you have and away you go.

Shep,

Get RYCO quick connect fittings, they are robust and can handle a bit of dust/sand.

JAMEC make some that don't like dirty conditions, the release button gums up easily.
