I know I read somewhere on Mud about tools for airing down all 4 tires at the same time but have been searching for an hour now and no luck.

The kit I recall reading about included 4 gages you could preset for the desired air pressure and then just screw onto the valve stem and air down to the preset PSI.

If there are more than one of these type of kits which are the best?

I am tired of spending 10-15 mins everytime we air down the old-fashioned way.

Thanx, Jim

I just use a valve removel tool and remove it for a few seconds. Very fast. Carry spare valve inserts just in case. They are very small.

Staun deflators are AWESOME.

Screw them on, crack open a soda, wait for them to stop hissing.
Unscrew them, off you go.

Thanx for the replys Wes and James.

I have gone the valve stem route but worry about x-threading and dont like to have to keep checking/adjusting the PSI and having to pull out the CO2 if I go too low.

The Staun "tyre" deflators are just what I am looking for; altho a bit expensive I think I will be a lot less likley to not air down due to the hassle of doing so and in the long run save $ on wear and tear on Truck and occupants.

This link has 2 Videos that show how they operate.

Stauns are WELL worth the money.

Mine were stolen out of my truck (but a Snap-On 1/4" socket wrench and a digital tire gague were ignored for some reason). And I have been waitinf for some spare cash to get another set.

Just got mine this week from 4x4 Connection...hopefully will have them calibrated by the end of the weekend...

I made one of these. Nice to air down and great for airing up. Those staun gizmos would work great on it and you would only need one.

There's an oasis version too. From what I've read, however, they're not as easy to adjust as the Stauns are.

I have Stauns and love them. Well worth the money, IMO.

What did the part cost for this? Does it also equalize the pressure in all 4 tires? I assume so but wanted to ask anyway.

Using a bicycle tyre makes calibration much quicker than with a giant truck tyre.

Great idea, I was going to kludge something together with a 1# propane bottle.

I was about $50CAD. I went with barbed ends and hose clamps so that I can fix it if need be. It deflates evenly if you are on flat ground. I am always within a couple pounds from tire to tire with a digital gauge.

The real bonus is airing up. It's fast and gets you off the trail quickly.

It looks pretty straight forward except for the center inflate/deflate portion. What parts are involved there?
