Pretty sure we will make this one, sans the girls though. They will be with their father. I may try and pick up a cheap compressor. It may take a while to air back up, but it's better then nothing until I get a tank setup.

Do NOT buy a CHEAP compressor... The air is so thin here it will take 15 min just to air up a single tire. I tried the MV-50 from Auto Zone $80 took forever even with the air filter off. Save and buy a good compressor or look into a CO2 setup.
Smittybilt CO2 is around $220 for everything you need and refills are $21. A tank should give you at least 4-6 air ups. I made my CO2 set up for around $140... This is one mod you do not want to skimp on!!

Oh, a real air system is on the list. Just no way to get it before Sunday and it sounds like there will be quite a few of us that need to air back up with no real way to do it.

You did hit on something I've been meaning to research on tank systems. You said you could get 4-6 air ups on one. What size tank is that and is that 4-6 tires, or four tires - 4-6 times (or 16 -24 tires)? Also, since you built you own tank system, any insight into my thread here?

CO2 or compressor?

It might be a good idea for us to figure out as a group how many tires we can air up and a rough time frame to get that done. If we end up with a larger group like last time, it could be an issue.

I'm not referring to their compressor but their CO2 tank...

4 tires = 1 air up. 4-6 air ups = all 4 tires -4-6 times.

Okay, he's another question for you (and remember, there are not stupid questions, just stupid people! lol). Everywhere I read people talk about airing up from 12~15psi back up to ~35psi, is 35psi all most of you run in your larger tires? Mine say 50psi on the sidewalls. I've never had "high profile" tires before, is that a common pressure?

Keith...no stupid questions...I run 26# in my 35" tires. Higher pressure = better mileage/. Lower pressed = better ride ,lower gas mileage (typically) Find a good middle ground.

I will have my Viair compressor. Works well for my 35" tires. I keep my tires about 32# for street use and 12 or 15 for trails. Typically the sidewall puts the maximum pressure for the tire. I've never found anything over 40# comfortable on the street.

Thanks guys. Maybe I'll try dropping them down to just about the TPMS warning level and see how they ride and what it does to our gas mileage.

Here is some information to help you with a CO2 set up.

I found a 15# (Aluminum) CO2 tank in Denver FILLED for $84!
( Liquor Barn 4415 S Broadway Englewood, CO 80113. 303-789-4100)
Most tanks run $75-100 and they are NOT filled.

Regulator at Colorado Compressed Gas-21st Colorado Springs $55
They also have tanks but wanted $135 plus $15 to fill it. I believe they RENT tanks but not sure of the cost.

Coil hose and fittings- Home Depot $26

I made an air up unit that cost me $18
Feel free to check it out on Sunday.

Total $165 Filled and ready to use!
You can also use this set-up for running air tools both at home and on the trail.
You just have to remember to keep tank filled... Weigh the tank when it's full then again when it's empty and that will help you keep track where it's at...Hope this helps you make an informed decision.


Please take a minute at check this out!

Bring your Fishing Poles

The trail ends down along Tarryall Creek so if we grab a bite there, the kids can drop a line. Under 16 does NOT need a license...

My tires have the same on the sidewalls, but on the door jam of the driver side it says that the tires should be at 37.

That is a good price on the tank. I found a new 10# online for like $106 shipped, but not filled. Do you get yours filled at Colorado Compressed Gas and is it $15 for the fill if you bring your own tank in? Do they just swap your tank out, or fill yours and give it back to you?

Yes, I get it filled at CCG, it runs $21, if you tell them your part of the Jeep club. You keep your tank, the tank should have attest date stamped on it, so keep yours! Nice thing is they'll fill while you wait and are open on Sat mornings!

I just talked to a co-worker that home brews and he gets his filled at a brew supply place (can't recall the name, but it's across from PT's). $15 for a 10# while you wait, you keep your own tank there as well. Not sure what their days/hours are. I may swing by there on my way home from work today just to check it out.

I think I can make this run, if you don't mind a newbie. i'll let you know for sure friday/satursday. Been on a few runs this year so far (justins moab hill run and the first family run with oberst), but still learning the ropes. I've been looking at the compressors comments. I have this compressor on my wish list. Is this capable or is it a piece of junk. thanks in advance for the feedback.
