Default good 12V air compressors?

No room for my 20# CO2 bottle in my new ride. What are people keeping onboard to inflate tires? I already have a $20 CF compressor that takes about 20 minutes to put 10PSI in a tire. I'm wondering if anybody makes one that actually works well.

LS1. Not enough room under there to add that. Definitely would be my #1 choice if I had the room.

I seen the lowes model awhile back. I dont see it being a cost effective setup.

Seems like that tiny tank would not be able to up the psi on a whole rig.

Trade the 20lb for a 10lb'er? If you could make it fit, I'm sure someone would be willing to do a straight trade or trade plus cash to get a larger tank.

We just put a warn powerplant on the front of my freinds jk.When looking at viair and other compressors,nothing even came close to the cfm of the compresor in the powerplant.If you want to air up big tires,do your research.
