12 volt air compressor....

Got a little air compressor to add air to my tires if need be. It's only $19 at Harbor Frieght, so I though it would be good to have in case of an emergency. 12 Volt, 100 PSI High Volume Air Compressor

Doesn't look like a bad little unit. Beats filling it up by hand...

I had a flat tire last week on my Ranger, it was costly and time consuming and a pain in the neck to get it fixed, so I decided having a small compressor in my tool box would be a great idea for emergencies. I wish I would have had it last week !!!

I tried it out today and it seems like it'll do the job.

I found out last week that when a Ranger has a flat tire on the front, and when the roads are all ice, you don't go no where. That truck will just spin and spin and the flat tire acts as a block on the wheel. I ended up getting it towed to a garage, they put on the spare, then I drove to Walmart to get another new matching tire put on.There was no way for me to change it on my own, (I have a heart condition), so doing it this way was my best option. Just fixing the tire might have worked for a while, but I didn't want to go thru this again so I bought a new tire. Having a little compressor there may have saved me some grief. Damn cold weather !!!!!!!!!! It was about 12 degrees when the tire went flat.

I'm surprised I'm not getting more positive results on this thread...having a air compressor on board the Ranger I think is a fabulous idea for emergencies. Heck for only $20 bucks I think it's a no brainer. All Rangers should come with an onboard compressor. After looking at it, I don't want to be without one !!

I got a cheesy little air compressor from Walmart but didn't expect much from it either. It DOES work and it works well to pump up a flat tire. I take it with me always.
