How do you like that compressor? Do you hook it up directly to tires to air up or do you have a tank that you fill? Is it pretty loud? I am considering getting one or getting a Power Tank but am currently on the fence.

Nice rig!

Nice rig!
The compressor is great. I have a small tank and filling up the tires is pretty fast. It does make some noise, but tolerable and not for long - it cuts out when it reached 150 PSI, and when you're filling the tires you're outside anyway.
