    The original is still the best, but others have come up with their version of the very same thing. I think Currie is the latest to launch one.

    Another vote for the ARB tool. I've let many other people use our on trips and they show up with one of their own on a later trip.

    The Stain are good, but the knock offs are hit and miss. I bought a set of the cheaper ones and was disappointed. I could not get them to hold a consistent setting below about 15 psi.

    The real ones work good, and allow you time to roam around and talk to people instead of going from tire to tire trying not to let out too much.

    I think it was you that caused me to let too much air out because you were talking!!! Ha!

    I have something similar to the JT brooks deflators. Got them years ago from Rausch creek. Some off brand but same concept. Set the pressure you want to air down to and forget about it. They automatically stop when they get to that setting

    I had a set of knock off stauns for a while. They worked ok but would come loose and the pressure setting would get screwed up. A friend gave me his old set of real stauns, which I used for a while. They’re definitely better but have the same issue. I recently got the JK innovations 4 wheel kit. Although I’ve only used it for one multi day trip so far, it seems awesome for airing down and up. Especially the latter. No more squatting by each wheel to fill up. Just attach the four lines and go chit chat with your buddies while all four tires fill up. Money well spent.

    I've been looking at that kit. Quality up to par?

    Yes the quality is good. No complaints at all. It’s all plastic, not brass, but it seems like it will hold up well. Time will tell.

    I have the same setup. I'm quite happy with it. Pressure is self balancing between tires so they all deflate / inflate exactly the same. A bit slower to deflate on a per tire basis than the ARB style since the valve stem isn't loosened, but you more than make up the time by doing 4 tire simultaneously.

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.
