Just watch the duty cycle if you’re airing larger tires. I saw a YouTube where they were doing a compressor test. They had a small portable like that which burned out rather quickly

I just got a 2021 Rubicon last week. It’s got a 110v plug standard.

I saw this compressor on a review for home units, not specifically 4WD related

I understand it’s a 110v household type unit, but the specs say it only draws 7 amps and I assume it pumps a lot more than the small 12 volt. More power because you’re running 10x the voltage

Could well be wrong, but at least at first glance it appears cost effective, it’s quiet, and should have a good duty cycle and performance

It appears not much if any larger than the portable 12 volt units with their carrying case. Side benefit is using it for normal everyday stuff around the house or garage

Would it work?

Have you checked the rating of the 110 volt outlet? If I remember correctly it's a little over one amp.

In a different thread this was discussed and the person could not run a compressor with the plug. I think it is meant for electronics like computers and such.

I just checked the Owners Manual. for mine it is 1 amp

Compressor would be a no go
