Picked up a cheaply made 4 tire inflator with locking closed flow chucks - and it’s working great and is super compact due to the small cheap vinyl hose. I’m in $40 for this - which is a quarter the cost of other off-road inflation kits. It’s also long enough - it would have cost more in parts to source this myself.
-This is the kit I purchased

It took a bit of modification to fully convert it to standard quarter inch disconnects - but I was able to add my in-line analog pressure gauge to validate all tires can be aired up or aired down to the same pressure at the same time.

The lines split from a central T to a second T on each side that then runs to the passenger/driver wheels.

Why not use the compressor that comes with the truck?
I am using the OBC - this allows me to inflate all four at once without having to move the chuck each time and lets me lower the pressure for off-road needs.

I think we have all had enough with the inflation... and it definitely isn't cheap

bad jokes aside, nicely done

+1 for all tire inflation/deflation. Didn't see the value at first. Got the Thor's with the 8' extension and no longer need the riv hose

100% next step is a 3’ hose as a lead between OBC and my trigger - then the Rivian hose will be an emergency only backup.

Seeing what the Thor kit cost and other “FourBy” kits cost is what drove me this direction.

Very cool. I had been eyeing cheap 4-tire inflation options and had picked this one for my Christmas wish list.

I've got a similar setup, but have discovered it takes too long to fill my aftermarket 20s from 25 psi up to the 60psi I drive with on-road. Still considering upgrading the compressor but haven't done anything about it yet.

I made a similar setup a few years ago. Mine does two at a time though. Up until I got the R1T I never ran the same tire pressure in all four tires. It also made the storage size a little smaller.

Insanely long and the quick connect is almost too hot to touch
