Something simple for a 5 gallon would be fine as long as its 100% duty cycle. A Viair 450C would be fine.

Just for clarification, your truck is what year? Assuming its not a first gen *87-91* but a six bolt 94 or newer? Likely has to do with the offset, and you'll probably need to run a small spacer to...
