I know that you can buy a kit that does this but why not make it. It is a local guy on our local board that put this up.

I've been meaning to make something like that for years and never get around to it...

I'm interested in it for my car and other jeep with a welded rear in particular, since you can use a gizmo like this to get the tire pressure perfectly equal between a pair (or all 4) tires. Great for improving treadwear on a welded diff or handling on your car...

I made a 2-chuck version of that a while ago, make airing up and down much easier. You can get cheap parts from surpluscenter.com, from what I remember mine cost like $30 total.

Very nice,

that'd keep me from running around to each tire pulling and dragging stuff out of the back.

that is a pretty simple system, and great for getting all tires at the same pressure, but while your at it, why not make it real convienent.

cut all the hoses to about 3 feet. put a disco on one end, and the air chuck on the other. then plumb a line to all 4 corners of your jeep from under the hood. get 2 cheap electronic air valves and a switch,mount the switch and guage somewhere convienent, and then you have a very quick portable system for both up and down. plumbed into your choice of air system you will be able to hook up, watch the guage as your tires deflate, and then unhook 4 small hoses. no dragging them in the mud, no curling them up, just throw them in the back and go. when its time to go home, hook them up again, and use your gage to air back up to what ever pressure you want, at the flick of a switch

I think I might just steal this idea:D
