Offroad Air Buddy

Air your Tires Up Fast!!

The Offroad Air Buddy is my creation. I have worked at a CO2 company (Carbonics inc) for years and made one these for my JKU. Recently I've realized that others might want something like this too.

This Kit comes with a 10lb tank (you can downsize to a 5lb if you want), regulator, steel regulator guard, quick disconnects, 25' of air hose, Tire Chuck with pressure gauge, 4 tire deflators, a tire Repair kit that includes patches, plugs, rubber cement, valve cores and valve core tools, valve caps, etc.

$485 regular price.

$450 for Wrangler Forum members (if you mention Wrangler Forum) Call 713-944-7900 to order and we'll calculate the shipping for you. Ask for Chrisy to place your order!

www.offroadairbuddy.com

If you are near Houston, you can come by the shop and we'll fill your tank first time for free! (Tanks must ship empty)

Cheers!
Sam

Looks like a pretty useful package.

For us dummies- quite possibly just me- a couple of questions:
* Can you quantify how much air is in the 10 lb tank? Like if I air down all 4 tires 15 lbs for offroading and then air them back up when done... how many times could I do that with the 10 lb tank?
* What sort of businesses can refill the tanks?

Thanks for asking! I tested the 10lb tank on my Jeep. Aired my 33" Falken Wildpeaks down to 12 psi each, and back up to 32 psi. 5 times. All 4 tires, 5 times. It took 2 lbs of liquid CO2 to air up all 4 tires once.

I'd be very interested in hearing how it works with larger tires, or if airing down to only 15 psi makes a difference.

Also, it took me 120 seconds per tire. My regulator frosted over pretty hard by the third tire, each time, but never iced over to the point of restricting air flow.

If I ever get the chance to go on one of those Jeep Jamboree things, or a long multi-day overland trip I *might* pack a 2.5 lbs little mini tank, just so if I ever run out i know i have at least 1 good 4-tire fill up in reserve!

You can get your CO2 tank refilled at Welding shops, paintball stores, or even better at CO2 suppliers that focus on the beverage industry. NuCo2, Airgas, and National Gases are some big national names. My place, Carbonics Inc in South Houston Texas, is just a little family owned business. If you google for CO2 refill there has to be some in your city, because all your gas stations, bars, and restaurants use these cylinders for sodawater and beer. Worst case scenario, go to a draft beer bar, or anyplace that serves fountain sodas and ask where they get their gas filled. If they don't know, it's printed on the label of their tank, by federal law, so all they have to do is look down at the tank and read the name on the label!

there's some information on the FAQS on the website also Offroad Air Buddy

PLEASE ask any other questions you can think of, this is a new project for us and I'm sure I haven't done a great job of organizing information or presenting it well, yet. working on it though!

Cheers!
Sam

Since i started this project, I've been able to find all parts wholesale/bulk now, so I'm able to drop the price!

I've also added a blow-out gun, and upgraded the gauge on the air chuck to a more accurate gauge.

Regular price: $440.00
Wrangler Forum Members: $400.00
