Thoughts on my onboard ARB compressor & Horn Blasters in my Toyota Tacoma

Anyone that knows me, knows I like accessories, especially accessories that serve a purpose.

After owning this for about 2 years, I would say it is my most used accessory. I could not tell you the amount of times I have needed to fill my tires, bicycles, other peoples tires, or even run the occasional air tool. It also powers my air horn. I do plan to add air lockers at some point, also made by ARB. It is an extremely well made, continuous duty piece of equipment.

Please note this is not a “how-to” video, but more of a what I did video…

A note about the compressor mount…. Because this project was done during COVID, and things were hard to get, I ended up making a custom mount that worked better for my needs. Currently, I believe there are different mounts available. All the air line are press fittings, high pressure hydraulic lines. I did not wat to re-do this so I built it indestructible. All fitting used are hydraulic fittings. The system literally does not leak at all. The pressure in the tank will go up and down depending on ambient temps. Here are the Air related products I used:

– ARB Air Compressor kit:

Or if you are looking for just the compressor, here it it:

– VIAIR 1 Gallon Tank

– Milton air Regulator:

– Viair Gauge:

A variety of air fittings, too many to list…

Horn Blasters:

Install RIGID rock lights to SwitchPro on Toyota Tacoma side steps

I installed these Rigid Rock Lights onto my Tacoma side steps and the work fantastic. They flood the area perfectly. Tied them into the SwitchPro and used the rear cab light as a trigger wire.

Installation side note: I went back with a Q-tip and touched up all the drilled holes with POR-15 to prevent rusting.

Toyota 3rd Gen Tacoma front winch bumper cutout for SSO Southern Style Offroad

This is NOT a HOW-TO or installation video. It is simply to show how easy it is to do the actual cutting of the OEM bumper with just a jigsaw and Multitool, although I would just do the entire thing with a Fein Multi tool if I was to do it again. ALSO, the entire install can be done by yourself quite easily with just a floor jack.

The front bumper I used: – Purchased with Heise – 20 inch LED light bar

In a small pickup truck, sometimes it is hard to keep things secure an from sliding around. This product was developed out of my personal need to secure my Milwaukee packout boxes in my Toyota Tacoma truck. I now have the ability to secure Packouts to the tailgate, factory bed rail, and on top of the back seat.
