Re: Automatic tire inflator for wheeling off road

Does the inline pressure regulator just block the air flow, or does it blow off/dump the air out allowing the pump to continue to running?

I thought I read something in reference to the ARB compressors not to allow them to run on a shutoff type line...

Very cool idea. I was secretly hoping you'd figured out how to adapt a military CTIS system to the FJ though.
I'll confess i looked long and hard at those... and they are very cool, but the ROI on that was going to take 1,000 years to pencil out :-)

This regulator blocks the air when the tire PSI and regulator reach equilibrium. The Viair pump i run has a solenoid that shuts the pump off when the line pressure reaches 100PSI. Certainly not all pumps have a solenoid shut off but any of the pumps that can be attached to a small air tank will. If a pump doesn't have a solenoid shut off you can ad a waist gate but at some point this contraption is getting out of hand and it's back to the stool :-)

Glad to see you are still with the FJ community , stealing this idea
I'd never leave this community... I still love my FJC... It killed me to demo the tire inflator on the GX470 in the video instead of the FJC but I had the GX out.

How about a version that fills all 4 tires at once? It's a lot more hose to wrangle, but then you don't have to switch it for each tire.
So I could add hose wrangler to my resume if I did that :-)... I was thinking about a set up to fill one side at a time... That seemed less attack of the killer octopus and might not trip me up in the dark. Might have to think about this a little more.

ARB compressors have a pressure switch preset to 100 PSI - this will work fine with them.
