We are thinking about a 12v air compressor for the S-10. Ideally the compressor would be mounted in the bed, a switch in the cab would turn it on, it would then fill 2 air tanks (one for the front ARB locker, and another thank for filling tires up), once it reached the desired pressure it would turn off and wait for the pressure to drop.
I've been looking around on the internet and the ARB RDCKA looks to be an ideal fit. Dose anyone have any experience with this compressor? Heard anything good or bad about it?
And a side question what PSI dose an air locker require?

Most air lockers I know of take 15 psi. ARB is REALLLLLLY picky about what the source is (they don't like CO2 tanks). As far as onboard air goes, I have the QuickAIR II, and it will be going on the tow rig to run airhorns, which is about all it does without kicking on. My brother has an Australian unit with a York attached to it, and it is VERY nice. I am going with an engine driven York on my next build.

FYI
The locker is normally unlocked and requires a constant (85 PSI min / 105 PSI max) air supply to lock.

On the ARB website, all flow numbers are at a MAX of 29 psi on the compressor listings. Wikipedia can be edited by all users.

Supply the ARB with clean, dry air between 85 and 105 psi.

Designed to pressurize your diffs with a constant 90 PSI,

Everything I can find on the net says that the ARB Locker requires 85 to 105 psi, arb may list the flow numbers at lower psi so that it appears that they have higher flow rate.
