View Full Version : 4 tire inflation and deflation system

this deflates my 4 tires evenly at once. It inflates my 4 tires evenly at once.


time with 1 pump hooked up to inflate all 4 tires to 37 psi from 8-9 psi 60 min
so i thought that's to slow so I added a pump and
time with 2 pumps hooked up to inflate all 4 tires to 37 psi from 8-9 psi 30 min
So i thought that's better but to slow so I added a pump and
time with 3 pumps hooked up to inflate all 4 tires to 37 psi from 8-9 psi 12 min

So it works very well. I cut the cig light ends off and put clips on the pumps to go direct to bat. No blown fuses that way.

I had the pumps kicking around all ready so I did not have to buy any pumps. Of course 2 really good pumps would be best or an oba system, but this works good and is fairly cheap, And is portable.

Oh ya best of all you can sit in the jeep and wait the 12 min or do something else. you don't have to do anything once it is hooked up.

i think you can still carry a few more hoses and definitely fit a few more clamps on that positive lead

Good lord that's some hose spaghetti. I just have an ARB compressor hidden away with a 5 gallon tank on the inside of the tail gate, and I can bring my 35's up from 10 to 38psi in 2 minutes per tire, and I have 4 Trail Head deflaters that bring them down to 10 psi in 2 minutes.

Efficiency man! EFFICIENCY!!!

I got enough shit in my rig that much hose would make me mental. I have a viar 45p. Fills my 40 iroks from 8-25 about 8 minutes a tire. I call that doobie time. But to each there own. Decent idea. .i

Must be a Jeep thing!!

This whole setup I did last year only cost me under $450, custom aluminum bracket, tank and air compressor, the compressor is hidden inside the emptied out subwoofer thing, I hit the switch about 5 minutes before getting ready to air up, the tank builds 100 psi, I can fill 1 tire before the compressor kicks back in and it maintains a steady 65 psi for the rest of the 3 tires.
The air line is wrapped around the tank and I use an ARB tire inflation tool with a built in gauge to see how much the tire is inflating to as I go.

It looks like a pain in the ass, but like i said I already had the parts lying around. I don't have the money to buy a dedicated on board air system yet, so I built that for something to do and to have fun. It does not take any time at all to set up as I keep the hoses rolled up in a tool bag, and I keep the compressors in an old bag as well. I keep the 2 bags handy so i don't have to search for them in the bottom of the jeep for example. The part that took the longest was building the system.

That being said I do have a 5gal tank I have been test fitting trying to decide where to fit it. I know where i am going to put it it is just a matter of relocating the evic canister then I can fit it there. It does not take any time at all to hook up the pumps. airing down only takes a a couple of min, I don't have to crouch down and look all i have to do is hook up the hoses and watch the pressure in the jeep and then unhook hoses. That simple. As for inflating roll out hoses hook up pumps, watch pressure in jeep or for that matter keep an eye on time knowing that it will be at the pressure i want in 12 min, I don't need to watch pressure. Unhook hoses and put pumps away. No big deal.

Like i said if the pumps were high end I would not need as many.
Sure if i had the money I would buy a high end duel pump like the arb but that's like $600 or so. One thing at a time. I also have Sadden or york air compressors kicking around I thought about them but they wont fit so my only option is electric pumps. So i thought if arb makes a duel pump why not try it your self. I did and it works well. I am sure 2 really good pumps and total inflation time to 37 psi would probably be like 7-8 min in total. For now 12 min in total works very well for me.

I thought about mounting the air tank inside the jeep on the tailgate that looks really nice but I have a steel jeep box in the jeep and if I did not it would take up to much interior space for me. I can fit in the back of the jeep and the kid for sleeping with nothing in it.

I tried a c02 tank that worked ok, but it was to slow and heavy and tank placement was an issue, not to mention the cost of refilling the co2 tank. Here is a pic of c02 tank and sleeping setup. Also that is a 24 inch 12v led tv that hangs from a bracket I fabricated. Just something to do to see if it would work.

I think there are mounts for tank mounting to the roll bar, I saw a CO2 tank from Quadratec a while back.

I said it looked like a pain in the ass, totally convinced otherwise now:roll eyes carry on having fun in bc....nothing to see here carry on. Its a jeep. Space is already at a premium. One little pump 4 tires 20 minutes. 8 minutes slower than your "can't believe nobody else thought of this" contraption. Id rather spend 8 more minutes than have that mess of hose and two pumps to deal with. [cheers]

That is actually good to know that home depot.com has those. Thank you. later on when i save up some money for that i will pick that up. that is what i am looking for anyway 100% duty cycle, for now i am happy with what this is and what it does. It is what it is but it will change just like everything always does.

a clip on shrader valve tool and a pressure regulator seems way less bulky and just as easy. Apathy ive run the viair-450c on a bagged s10 i built. Its a wicked compressor!!!! Looks like the price has come down a bit too!

What about mounting your tank in the under the heep somewhere? its just a baby and you wont loose interior room that way.

I used to use a valve stem removal tool but they tend to fly out on you,(and land in the snow or mud if your not careful) it works well as long as you don't go to low on the tire pressure. There is a spot i could mount the tank I just have to relocate the gas canister filter or whatever it is called, then it will fit there.

ya, the one i posted is the tits, had it for years and the only time it has ever even given me a hickup is when it was so cold the pressure switch froze up.

I let the rig get warm and it took off.

You can also mount a skinny tank in the storage area under the rear mat where the factory jack is. Look for 2010jkdriver on BCJeepclub, he did a sweet looking job with his.

I drive to the gas station and air up thats even cheaper and theres a gas station within 15 minutes of most fsr's or trail heads lol

Same here epic i drive to the gas station. Sure would be nice to have an expensive air system though.
