Sage,

This old fart is confused ...still or again....

WD.com has Staun deflators at $ 59.99  and Smittybilt deflators at $ 39.99

at:   http://www.4wd.com/jeep-parts.aspx?cid=27&jeep-sid=178&plID=882

I can't tell the difference from the pictures, except Staun's have a plastic bag...

You have Smittybilts?  at retail? 

But being an old fart, I'd like to not kneel down to deflate....    but  I can't determine how the range works...  will they go down to like 3 or 4  psi  ?   Some vendors have two ranges   0-12  and 12-25   Now ...   what do you have for sale?  I'm interested.

K.

Sorry about your confusion......A buddy sent me the email re:Smittybilt. I just posted it in the for sale space 'cause I didn't know where else to hang it....

I have the Staun's, in a Leather bag. I can't find any details on the Smittybilt's, but Staun's have the range (3 psi) that you speak of....

I just thought, for the average wheeler, this might be a good price. I would think, without further research, that you would want to go with the Stauns. (You might want to check with Smittybilt to see if theirs goes down to 3 psi, then make your decision. Maybe save $20!)

The not kneeling is well worth it!

Sage,

I'm still interested,  and of course still an old fart...


but ...

according to:

http://www.4by4connection.com/stauntirdef.html

Stauns come in three different ranges:

Light Duty (0-10 PSI) Preset @ 7 PSI

Original (6-30 PSI) Preset @ 18 PSI

Heavy Duty (15-55 PSI) Preset @ 35 PSI

RETJSTAUN   $54.95

I'm just one confused guy...  typically I run highway and tow at 25,    dirt at 11,   and snow and rocks at 4 - 5   So I don't even know which set I'd want   much less which set YOU have.

Pan...I believe that my Deflators are in the 6-30# range. They would work for you fine I am sure. Gavin has painted 2 of his as he delates to different pressures for front and rear. You could set your's up the same way....

Hope this helps! You could set 2 @11 and 2 @ 6....It will still save your knees considerable....

Oh, now, the light bulb glows....  I see Sage you are NOT selling any deflators....   despite your having put the brag about how you loved your gift in the parts for sale thread....

Oooopppppsie on my part for thinking you had some $ 60.00 deflators for sale for $ 40.00   See old timers disease does set in.
