    That's what I'm here for, the mods and the gear.
    I have the Staun brand and they work fine. There are no markings to let you know the PSI, so you will need to manually set them; easy to do. I like the idea of those others simply because of the markings. But there are no reviews and I wonder how they hold up and their accuracy.

    He might be biased but he’s right. No need to spend $100 on deflators when you can spend $100 (or less depending on build choices) and then you also have a combination inflator device too. I built one and happy I did. Flexzilla gauge/inflator is spendy but accurate, if I did it again I’d get a cheaper digital unit.

    I chuckled at the product description. Boasting about the accuracy, immediately followed by + - 2#'s :D

    I've heard that those are nice. If I were to go that route, I'd set them to different pressure for different situations.

    I use a Smittybilt deflator. It's a little more work, but it's nice to be able to choose whatever pressure I want to run for a situation. I'll run 12, 15, 20, or 25 depending on the situation.

    What situations call for only 25? Regular winter driving?

    I had 22 p.s.i doing this hill. The truck in the video isn't mine. I'm just showing what 22psi can do.

    I have knock off Staun deflators and that is exactly how mine are set up. 1x set to 25psi for gravel roads 2x set to 17psi for general off road and 1x set to 10psi for deep snow or sand.

    T.W.A.T runs, anything that doesn't really require a ton of traction. It's mostly just to soften the ride up a little bit on gravel roads.

    Although, I pretty much start at 20 with the 295's lately.

    I was going to buy the Overland set to test them out on the T.W.A.T run, but they're either sold out or not for sale yet. Worse case scenario, I would've returned them because they were bad for their purpose.
