I have a 12 volt ARB air compressor, and a CO2 tank. I also carry Safety Seal to make tire repairs. If you plan to do much back country travel you may want to spend the extra $$ and get good equipment now. I've seen the $50 Truck-air unit work well.
I know some people never have any flats, breakdowns, or get stuck. But I like to be ready, just in case.
Their are compressors ranging in price from $35 to $600, but for about $200 you can get a long lasting, dependable unit. Quick-air also makes good units in the mid price range.
One side note: The $35 unit will need about 30 minutes per tire, to inflate and cool to be ready for the next tire. 2 vehicles X 8 tires X 30 mins = :-( I think I'd put up with washboard roads.
If you want, feel free to email me and I can send you links to all the info. you will most likey need.
