Don't know the brands, Carl. I would stick with Eaton or maybe Parker, period. I bought some nylon push-ons from Grainger several years back. Big mistake. Two that were exposed to heat came apart while crossing the Little Big Horn. Never again. Replaced them all with brass Eaton. Do have a couple from the Parker Store on my rear air springs. IMHO, air line fittings (or air line) are not a place to try and save a few pennies. Are the other brands that look decent to you also DOT approved brass connectors?

Ya I'm a fan of SMC KV2's overall. But anything below the rail or above 1/2" in size I use Parker compression. Bulkhead through really thin material I like the Legris bulkhead push connects. Push connects that don't release, leave a ring on the tube, or that need a condom to keep the dirt & water out can stay in the drawer....

That seems like a lot of coin for parts you hope to never need.  And it doesn't include the tray.

I bought a small tool box with snap in translucent assortment trays recessed in the lid.  I bought a couple of each size and configuration fittings, and 10' of each size line.  The most important items, in my eyes, is an assortment of o-rings to repair old fittings, along with a pick set to remove/install said rings.
