The Shop Jeep – Part 2

On-board Air

After the Bulldog Canyon run, where there are many BIG rocks, I realized that on-board air would be nice. Air down the tires to minimize teeth-chattering impacts and allow them to contour to the boulders, then air them up to drive home. So, we ordered the following parts:

  • ARB Twin 12V Compressor, part # CKMTA12
  • ARB Mount Kit for 2018+ Jeep Wrangler JL, part # 3550220
  • (2) ARB Air Compressor Reinforced Hose, 1.5M, part # 0740204
  • ARB 90 degree 1/4″ NPT to JIC-4 Elbows (2pk), part # 0740110
  • ARB Hose Coupler, Remote Mount, part # 0740111
  • Viair one gallon Tank, part # 91010

It took me three different orders to figure that list out! One of the challenges is that ARB discontinued their one gallon tank, for which a bracket is included for in the 3550220 (bummer). So, I sourced the Viair tank and then had to wait until I figured out where to mount it to know what NPT to JIC-4 adapters would be best suited for the air line runs. Due to time constraints, I had to do this installation over the course of two different weekends.

2022 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon JL

Shop Jeep - Oro Valley, May23

In the middle of 2021, we decided a Jeep was the ideal next vehicle for us. So, we visited Jeep’s website, designed it to our specs, and ordered it up. We ordered it in white to be a blank canvas. We optioned it with the Xtreme Recon Package which adds 17″ beadlockers, 35″ tires, and a 2″ lift – right from Jeep. We also added the Trailer-Tow and Heavy Duty Electrical Group which includes the 240A alternator, 700A battery, Class II Receiver Hitch, 7 and 4-pin trailer harnesses, and auxiliary switch panel.

It arrived in March of 2022 – long delays due to parts shortages!
