I run a cheap portable one. I don’t even remember the brand, I gotta check. Its always got the job done but it’s slow as hell. I’d like to upgrade to something on-board but I don’t know how much of a priority that sound be.

We have the bigger portable Viar (whatever the 100% duty cycle one is, 450P?) to move around rigs at the shop, and I have a single screw ARB onboard on my truck. Either is fine with me honestly. If I was airing up tires every weekend I'd probably go with the twin ARB either permanently mounted or in their portable kit.

I think for that I agree but I’d want it onboard arb if it was for a every weekend type of thing ? , side note one of my good buds just got a power tank and dang those things are quick lol not sure if you’ve seen those

Yeah we ran one of the originals back in the day. They work awesome, but having it filled is a PITA.

I currently have a Viair 400p which gets the job done. I’d like to do the expedition essentials bedside mount eventually and maybe a dual ARB. But that’s not a priority since the Viair is good for the time being.

I agree that’s like a down the road type upgrade

I would even consider modifying the Expedition Essentials to fit my Viair in the meantime. I do like the ability of having it in one place in the bed.
