Default air compressor

Im want to get a small compressor to mount in the back of my blazer. What do you guys recommend? It will mainly be used to air up tires. I have 33s if it really matters. I dont want something that takes 20min per tire like the comp. i have now. Eventually I will get a small tank for when i get air lockers but that wont be for a while. I'd like to keep it under 100 bucks.

i think i would rather have a compressor. I plan on mounting a compressor and hard wiring it. It will also be out of site. I dont want to have to mess with filling tanks or worry about running out.

perhaps I have a biased opinion, but an OBA setup is way nicer than the electric compressors. All the electric ones I have seen seem to take quite a long time to air up tires. My OBA setup takes about 30 seconds for a 33 from 5lbs to 35lbs. It ended up costing me about $150 bucks total to get it setup, after about 20 trips to the parts bins.

i looked into that for a while but I like having AC and i dont have room for another ac compressor. Im just looking for something better than what i have. I dont care if it takes 5min to go up 15psi but the one i have now takes for ever. Last time i just said fukc it and drive to the gas station.
