It's never done of course, but it's pretty darn close. If/when AEV ever starts selling their JL/JT snorkel I'll probably pick one up. Potentially extend the axle breathers to the air box.

Been on two camping trips so far and I'm loving all the cargo I can store in the bed, cook on the tailgate. We've been bringing our JL along too so that carries the Dometic fridge but I could put it in the back seat of the JT.

What’s your thoughts on the VIAIR? I have been trying to decide between that and the ARB with a tank.

Never tried the ARB compressor but this is my 2nd VIAIR system. I have the Xtreme duty system on my JL. It's been solid for me so far. I went with the 425c on the JT since I'm running 37s and it has the highest flow rate for filling tires. With my husband & I airing up at the same time, one of us can fill all 4x 37s on the JT with the 425c pumps in the time it takes the other to fill 3x 35s on the JL with the Xtreme duty. I like having a tank because I can pre-fill it when I stop to air down and it's that much faster to air up with the tank already pressurized.

I havent looked at the new viair offerings but a couple years ago the ARB twin was 20-30% faster airing up than the dual compressor viair systems so I went ARB twin on my LJ. I imagine the new dual 425c kit is closer in speed (more similar CFM at tire pressures). I like the ARB twin for packaging where all you need to do is hook it up to power and connect a hose and go. The pressure switch is built into the compressor.
