This one is engine driven, but probably pretty pricey. http://www.vmac.ca/index.php?underho...6ab38af7d7e53f
If you are handy at fabricting, you could probably build your own brackets and use a york a/c compressor. They work very well as an air compressor and are cheap at the wrecking yard. Then all you have to do is plumb in a tank and shut off switch.
Here are several 12v options, the Oasis has one of the highest cfm and is a york compressor with an electric motor. If you are not airing up lots of tires the smaller ones will work, but you get what you pay for and you can quickly burn up one with over use. http://offroadrecovery.com/category/aircompressors/

THanks, but I think I want something to either mount in my tool box or on the frame of the truck. Plus shipping to Iowa would probably kill me. THanks again. Red
