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.
Great price on sale. Does a respectable job after modification to allow use of 1/4 inch fittings. I put on a clip on chuck to inflate 35s.
I bought this compressor along with ARB deflator and ARB hose. ARB comes with 1/4" quick connects. Smittybilt has a size that 2 shops couldn't figure out what they were. So we cut hose in half and put connectors that are 1/4". Now I can use Smittybilt hose and 1/4" tools. Overall still a good compressor that is way inexpensive compared to ARB. The inflator that comes with Smittybilt also needs to attached with clear acces to stem. If you need to come at stem at angle and you have only inch or two clearance it won't work. Look at end of deflator it is a box with short hose to connect. I have Fuel rims.
Does an excellent job of inflating my tires after a trail ride, I am very impressed at how well built this thing is.
Better than I expected. Simple and fast.
Used for Jeep off-roading. Fast tire inflation. Works fast and portable.
easy to use

I have a jeep with 35 inch tires and i air down to about 15 to 12 psi on the trails. Will this air compressor be able to fill all four tires back up or do you recommend the smittybilt compact air system?

Hi JC, This Smittybilt 5.65 CFM Air Compressor isn't designed to quickly air up oversize tires, however we offer one that works better.

What is the max pressure you can fill a tire to with this compressor, for example I have 37X12.50/17 tires that I can run up to 50 PSI in, can this compressor fill this tire to that?
Asked by Gibby from Santa Clarita, Cali on
Gibby, The Smittybilt 5.65 CFM Air Compressor can technically pressurize the tire that high however the higher the pressure the longer it will take to inflate. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thanks!
