Default on board air

id like to run on board air in my truck with the factory a/c compressor. i know i need to but an inline oiler on it and run lines+tank. but does anyone know how to wire it so that it has a pressurized shut off? or where to get a pressure shut off system from.

use a switch for an air compressor. that is what I did on my XJ. the one I bought also had a blow off line and I bought a check valve with a 1/4" compression fitting so when the compressor shut off it would purge the pressure from the line between the compressor and the check valve so the compressor would start easier.

I also ran a water/oil remover so the oil wouldn't get into my tank. The biggest problem here is finding one that can withstand the heat of an engine bay. The best one I could find only went to 175 degrees. And it was giant and expensive. Although XJ engine compartments get hotter than other vehicles.

I have pics from my XJ if you want them.
