First, I am aware there are cheaper ways of doing this. Not to mention, through trial and error, I absolutely spent more then I needed. But below is the list of the parts I actually used and I am very happy with the results. I added a Milton valve so it can be used at any gas station air pump if needed. the total for this set up was right around $200.

For instructions, generally all YouTube vids follow the same general setup and I kinda picked and Chose what features I liked from each one.

So does this “equalize” the pressure to all four tires simultaneously? I’m assuming yes. And can it be set to stop air flow at a designated pressure, or is that the purpose of the valve and you need to keep an eye on it?
Thanks for your write up.

How well does all this pack up? Does it fit easily in a small bag or under the rear seat?

This sounds smooth, man! Would love to see pics of it in action. Thanks for the detailed list of components.

There are also alternatives if you wish to buy complete. Speedflate is one company that I used. I believe there are others out there also.

The pressurized air in a closed system equalizes against whatever restriction their is, but yes, all the tires reach the exact same pressure. The valve on the Speedflate set I have is manual, whether inflating or deflating, and you need to keep an eye on it.

You could put a pressure valve on your compressor to set the limit airing up, but for how I stow mine, I decided it would be too fragile.

I have made a similar setup. Bought a battery cable storage bag to store mine.

I bought Morflate version on Black Friday for under $150. Also added the Milton valve so I could inflate at a gas station if my ARB ever failed. Its just a great system if you off road regularly and the added benefit of perfectly balanced air pressure helps to keep tire wear even.

Sorry for the late reply to everyone.

Does this “equalize” the pressure to all four tires simultaneously? yes*, however this is dependent upon load distribution and a level surface. The front end of your Jeep is much heavier so naturally if you let it distribute on it own, you will inherently get higher PSI in the rear.

How well does all this pack up? As it is now, I feel like I need a large duffle bag but, I can add couplers at the split which will allow for rapid disassembly which will then allow for much more compact stowage. jumper cable bag as mentioned in one comment.

After market options are right on $200 also - this makes me feel better :) plus I got to build it and that was fun.

I bought Morflate version on Black Friday for under $150 - Im going to ignore this comment and keep reading the one above.
