Well no, but I mean how fast do you want to fill those 35s? I'd say if you don't want to piss around with mounting a York get a viair with a tank/regulator and whatnot..that's what i'm going to do. You run a tank so you can pre-fill up to like..100psi and fill your tires twice as fast.

I use a 12 volt compressor, and it works fine and is actually quite fast. The compressor is sold by SmittyBilt, it is a knock off of the much more expensive viair compressor. Here is a picture of it

You can get a decent 12v compressor,with a reservoir and a pressure switch they work pretty good.Check out firestone,they have a few different models
for their airbag suspension.I just picked one up from my buddy at lordco for
$150.00.Like ya say it won't run tools but it delivers pretty good air for tires.

Pretty similar to Mudchilds and I know his works good!

I run a Firestone 1.75 cfm @ 150psi that is a military spec, %100 dudy cycle and has only shut down on me twice, once at the fool's run and once at Harrison lake after running for about 1 1/2 hrs.
I have three tractor trailer tanks mounted under the box and have one way check valves on them to protect the compressor and my ARB.
Its slow to fill the tanks but once they are full I can inflate my 37" Goodyear MTR's from 5psi to 20psi in about 7min.
I have run this compressor for 9 years ond just had to rebuild it. (one bearing $7)
Electric was the only option for me due to space.
A power tank is probally the best if you want to run air tools.
Hope this helps.
