    All I said was that the 5 gallon tank had to hit 135 to pick the front of my car up. I never said I had to have 135 psi in the bags to lift the car. There is a big difference. And the point I'm trying to make is that even if you can get a tire pressurized high enough, I don't think it'll have enough volume to stand on it's own.

    Wow, I forgot I even posted this. Seems like it's gotten a lot of action. Anyhow eventually when I get the air setup installed, I'll probably go with scuba tanks, but keep a small expansion tank and one compressor for emergencies.

    I saw a mini-truck at a car show that used the chassis as an air tank. A portion was boxed in and tapped for lines. Seemed to work ok.
