    I use a hard mounted MV50 with some minor/freeish upgrades and it's been a lot better than using the gas station on my first ENH run. If you check out my build thread you can see how to make a simple system to air up and down quickly.

    one thing some folks forget is to run the engine when airing up, the pump goes a lot faster
    That is the one that is in the "found deals" section also: http://forums.exploringnh.com/showth...-only-69-95!!!

    And running the engine also prevents a dead battery ;)

    That first one is what most people have and I had one back in the day as well, but the switch failed.

    The second one is the one I still have, but I could swear that it is faster that the claimed 3.17cfm. Probably because back when I bought it it was $180 ;)
    Traction, articulation, and gearing make a good off-road rig. Just a big lift, wide mud tires, and a winch simply do not.

    I made this tech inspection for the Overland Challenge:



    A description and brief reasoning of each field is here: http://overlandchallenge.com/tech-inspection/

    It is a little different than the list in the first post here but could easily be modified for ENH trail runs if any Trail Leaders wanted it.
