Dual Compressors

Anyone running dual air compressors? I want to get these, but not sure what kind of draw it puts on the charging system?

Garrett runs duals. He just put them in recently. PM sent so he answers this thread.

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.

i run the dual 450c kit AND a 480c. you know when theyre on by looking at the voltage gauge but its not that bad. my gauge sits around 14-14.5 volts normally, when i turn them all on(one at a time), they drop it to 12 volts.

i wired mine seperately. they each are on their own switch and relay. definitely put out a good amount of air.

i got the same system from a supplier on ebay. have a 5 gallon air tank for my system and i love them. I will never be able to have a truck without them again. mine will operate a 1/2 inch impact so i can change my tires for a flat or air them back up after coming in off the beach. also works great for my 2 grover air horns.

Its not how fast you get there but how much you can pull on the way there.
