    Holy thread resurrection. Probably a great idea. Not sure I honestly didn't get all the ways through. The deflators I use are super basic terraflex at a whopping 14$ ish.

    Maybe a dumb question but why would you need 4 deflators if they release air as soon as you attach them. Or am I missing something. And that little button on your gauge isn't that for releasing air? Thanks

    So you don't have to do one tire at a time? 🤔

    Great idea...and yes, it is much faster to have four tires airing down simultaneously, not to mention much better for the back (old man comment)...

    I can relate to that old man back thing.. So you just move around from tire to tire quickly? And when setting up the set screw you are not setting at full on open? Is this correct? Thanks

    I know on my deflators, which are Staun's and set to 12 psi...by the time I thread the 4th one on, I go to the first one and begin removing them all in the same order I put them on. Then I check with a gauge and usually only have to remove another two psi for the trail...more for sand or snow

    Just thought maybe it would release to fast. I still have not had the need to air down yet. I just installed the ARB twin under the hood so one day when I finally come home my jeep is set up with what I may need. I think I may have jumped the gun when I bought it in 2011 I only have 22,000 miles on it. And unfortunately mostly highway miles.

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.
