Make your own CO2 air fill system for under $200
« on: February 26, 2012, 08:49:06 PM »
I recently sold my Warn winch that had the compressor built in.  Since I no longer have the compressor, I had to come up with an alternative for airing up my tires.  I built a CO2 system.  $49.62 Poly Performance CO2 regulator. $81.99 10# CO2 tank from http://www.aquariumplants.com. $48.37 Kidde Safety RB16 Running Board Bracket for 20# SKU:408-292474 from ReStockit.com. $20.00 misc. parts. Grand total = $199.98.  I saved $20.00 by ordering the parts individually instead of buying a $219.00 Poly Performance CO2 package. All the prices are delivered and were the best I could find at the time I ordered.

Nice write up Mike.  I noticed the compressor was missing and forgot to ask.  Why'd you change?  Post some pics of your new set up.   You are the one always saying, "Pictures, or it didn't happen!"

I am sure Mike will reply but we discussed during the Tech Day and he mentioned front end weight as the issue.
