    Now that I posted the pic I think I see a button that you push to hold the lever back.

    Nice DIY filler. I was going to go the same route but all the damn brass fittings, ball valve & gauge cost more than this ARB unit I bought for under $20.

    I have one similar and the button is identical but it is a bleeder for the hose only. Wonder if this one is the same.

    I got mine at the 4WD tent sale by me last year. It was 20% off. I think they are still somewhere around $25 online.

    Qtech has it for cheap: http://www.quadratec.com/products/16104_9102.htm.

    I have the same one. Love it. Fast and works well. And accurate when compared with another gauge. Come to think of it, you've used it.

    I snap this on and after a minute I close the valve and it displays the current tire pressure. When open it reads the tank pressure. I run it on a 12volt PUMA.

    Anything out there like this? It works great, cold hands stay in jacket pockets while the tires inflate.

    I made a similar thing, except I expanded it to do two tires at once, which balances the pressure equally on each side of the differential. I use this balance hose to both deflate and inflate. I can also use it to quickly borrow air from the spare while on the trail.

    I made/use one daily at work, except with a 10' whip on it to stay away from huge high pressure tires while airing up. A short whip would be nice in this application so you would be hands free and you could stand up while you do it. That double hose is a pretty sweet set up too.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
