The tank is leftover from an old oil less compressor that burned up, but you can get most of the parts from www.offroadoverstock.com They actually have a nicer pressure switch for not much more $$. This square D one is available at most hardware stores, but I got mine from Grainger for $18. I used a York compressor and fittings and filters/regulators from harbor freight.

Its hard to list what all I used, I had a good chunk of it laying around.

The only thing I Think I will change is different filters/regulator setup, I need an inlet filter put on it still, I wouldn't use this style hose again. I likely will replumb it again.

Everything will look better when I paint it. I have to re-paint the undercarriage, the jeep is getting painted, and the OBA tank is going to get painted at that time to match the jeep.

I need to tube the one, it goes flat pretty fast, need the SYE and to get my steering machined and the tierod/draglink built, It won't be done until tax season unless some of my shit sells. Jeep budget got blown on the flatty this year.

Holy Shit Jake.....I guess I missed this thread since you first posted it. I didn't realize that you put 3/4 ton axles under it. Looks good. What size are those tires you have on it now, 36.5 or 38.5. Everyone ran the On-Off Road RVT back in the day. I remember seeing as many sets of those are Hawgs and Swampers.

Those were 38's, but they measured closer to 37, It is on rollers right now as those were Adams tires that I was borrowing.

To finish in short I need:

SYE
Driveshaft
Hi-steer or crossover steering
brake lines
Tires
H1 wheels
4.88 gears for the front axle.

Pretty much why I have been playing with the flatty so much.
