    This is what I’ve always used. Pull the core, either count to 50 or wait for the pitch to change, put it back in and move to the next.

    I did recently pick up the digital Currie tool but haven’t had a chance to try it out.

    Yup, this or one like it. Pulls the stem out but without risk of losing it. Super fast.

    I've always used a schrader valve tool and kept extra valve cores in the glove box. You can usually find them for a dollar or two.

    Here is what I made and use regularly for airing down. Nothing fancy but works well and allows me to check the pressure while deflating.

    If you are running a wheel with two valve stems (ATX chamber PRO II) as an example you can attach an air gauge to one and pull the from the other. I have been using the ARB tool but now I just pull the core, watch the gauge and stick it back in. Seems to be about 6’s. That being said, it does require you to have two valve stems. Otherwise the tool mentioned above is a win.

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.
