Since youre young and likely in shape, why not get a quality bicycle floor pump? There are high capacity ones out there that would do the trick. I can get my road tires from new tube to 110psi in just a few pumps on the one I have. Probably would only take a good 5 minutes per tire on a Jeep and the really good ones only run around $40

Your talking road ties on your bike right? Mine is The same, just a few pumps & it's at 110psi. You have too remember The tube is only an inch in diameter compared to a Jeep tire, much much less volume too inflate.

& no matter how old or young one is, it would simply suck.

That absolutely annoys the hell out of me when people air down but don't want to wait for their PepBoys special air compressor or don't have a compressor at all and want to "borrow" my co2..I flat out won't do it any more.

Sorry but that's poor advice. Everyone should pull their own weight unless there is a failure or emergency and you can come together. If your compressor just caught fire, I'll let you use some co2. If it's too slow for you and it's 100*F outside here in Texas...that's a real bummer. c-ya!

I used to let people help themselves to my CO2 but what used to last me a whole year of wheeling changed to 2-3 refills/year. At $16 a refill for a 10lb tank, that wasn't so bad but I hated to drive the distance to get my tank filled. I stopped using my CO2 and started to use my MV50 once again. Now, I only bring my CO2 when I'm on a schedule and have somewhere to go after wheeling.

I'm going to larger tire valves, more for speed..but lightly because I can say "sorry, my chuck wont fit your tires".

I'm not going to jinx myself, but yes I recognize that issue. I can loan some money from my parents in a vehicle breakdown and that's about it. Mostly because they like their cars too much.

I have the MV50, but thought this was a cool video, just because of the Wrangler to the rescue...VIAIR 90P Portable Compressor : Amazon.com : Automotive
The second video.

Don't discount the hand pump. They are much quicker than compressors if you have any meat on you at all.

It only takes a few minutes to pump with a quality bike pump. Put down your double bacon cheeseburger and cowboy up.

I also have a MV-50 mounted on board and have no problems at all. I can inflate my 31x10.50 from 15lbs to 30lbs in 2 min pre tire. 8 mins and I'm good to go. On one trip I inflated my tires as well as a friends it never cut out, did all 8 with no problem.

Re-reading this thread, I found something which should have been addressed but was not:

No, it is not. Because the MV50 is an electric compressor, there is no need to leave your engine running while you use it. Even if it takes 20 minutes of continuous operation to air up, your battery will easily handle this load and still start your engine after you are done.

Last few times we went out, we used a Viair 85P...$50 at Amazon. Throw away the cigarette lighter plug and just wire on the battery clamp ons. This last time we aired eight 33x12.5" tires from 12# to about 27#. We did 4 of them in probably about 20 minutes, then let the compressor cool off for about 5 minutes, then did the other 4. Did it take a little time?... yea, but what else did we have to do but relax and relive the experience we had just had. Speed isn't always needed for guys that drive 3mph.

When you're in a group of Jeeps on the side of the road ready to head back after a day of wheeling, there is always one guy with a slow compressor that slows the entire group down... so slow that half the time others start connecting their compressors to his tires to help speed things up so everyone can get rolling without leaving him behind. A slow compressor may not seem like an issue but the more you wheel, the more you'll start thinking of a faster compressor. That hit me when my long-gone TruckAir compressor that took 45 minutes to refill my tires was 30 minutes slower than the other compressors in my group one night in Death Valley many years ago.
