    Thanks! Just got tired of smashing one knee in the rocks and pressing my cold purple thumb on the chuck for 2 minutes.
    Double Hose = sweet! Never crossed my mind.

    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 like this! How do you have your Puma compressor set up? Is it the one that has the 2 gallon tank with it? I am thinking about buying that one and permanently mounting it in my Jeep. Would love to know what you think about it.

    I just used a velcro strip/ band and wrapped it around the hand valve on my ARB fill gauge. Hands free.

    My Puma has been great so far. I kept it mobile so I can use it with my truck, off road trailer and the Jeep. It would be cool if it was mounted permanently! The only con is that it is bulky, I keep it in a tote in the back of the jeep with some other gear. Air up time is around 1:45 per tire if I remember correctly.

    After trail runs I'll get it out and air up then I become the community air up station once I'm spotted.

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.
