This Rugged Ridge Adjustable Tire Deflator Kit is for those of you that have a 1987 all the way up through the most current model year Wrangler that want an easy and fairly quick way to deflate your tires when you get to the trail without you needing to stand there and actively deflate them. This is something that you can just screw onto the valve stem and all the tires will automatically deflate to a preset pressure. Now I say fairly fast because this is going to be pretty quick but moreover, this is going to give you the opportunity to do other things while your tires are deflating. You can disconnect sway bars, you can get your cooler ready, whatever you need to do. There are faster ways of deflating tires, but you actually have to be there deflating each tire. It's not going to do it automatically for you. So a little bit of a trade-off there. It really comes down to you, how you prepare for your trail ride, and what you want on your Jeep. This is going to be very, very easy to use, one out of three wrenches, not really an install, but a little bit of setup to do and I'll tell you exactly how to get that done in just a minute here.There are a couple different manufacturers that are going to make a very similar product. They're going to be brass like this. They're going to come in a carrying case. They're all going to be pretty good. These ones from Rugged Ridge are no different. These are going to work very well for you. I think these ones are fairly priced. If you like the Rugged Ridge brand, this is going to be a good buy. So the way that these work is that you set the pressure that you want your tires to air down to, you take your valve stem cap off, screw these onto the valve stem, and it'll automatically bleed air out until it comes down to that pressure when it will then stop. Then all you have to do is remove these from the Jeep before you start driving and you're all set. You didn't have to stand there and actively air down each one of the tires. This isn't, however, going to be any faster than using a pressure gauge or a key to push on the valve stem to let the air out of the Jeep. If you want the fastest possible way to air down your tires, there are air down kits that actually the valve stem core. That's going to be the quickest way to do it but again, if you want a hands-off automatic way to do it, this is going to be a good choice.So the way these are made is these are brass through and through. There are a couple of rubber O-rings on there and there's going to be a spring on the inside of this. So what you're going to do in order to get the pressure set on this is air one tire down to the pressure that you want for off-road. So if you want to wheel at 15 pounds, air the tire down to 15 pounds. You'll use a regular gauge for that. Make sure you're at exactly 15 pounds. So you're going to loosen up this jam nut here, screw this onto the valve stem, and then loosen it up until you start to hear air coming out of the tire. Then you can just tighten it up a little bit more until you're not hearing that air and then tighten up the jam ring. And what that's going to do is set this so that the spring tension inside of this is set to let the air out of your tire until it reaches that 15 pounds. Rinse and repeat for all four of these and now they're all set to the same pressure so that you can automatically just screw them on to your Jeep, walk away, it'll bleed pressure off until it gets to that set pressure. When you're not using these, you throw them in the handy carrying case to make sure that they're not just floating around in your center console.Again, not much of an installation here, a very easy one out of three wrenches to use these. I already went over the process for setting the pressure that these air down to. As far as use goes, you really just screw them on, walk away, you'll hear when they stop bleeding air out. You remove them, put them in the carrying case and just go ahead and hit the trail, go have some fun. Now, these do have a little bit of weight to them, even if you're going slow, you don't want to leave these on your valve stem while you're driving. You don't want them flopping around. Do remove these before you get back in the Jeep and start driving. Other than that, very, very simple use. These are going to run you right around $40. I think that's a pretty good deal for what you're going to get here. There are some other manufacturers making something very, very similar that are going to be all right within the same price range, so I think it's going to be a good deal.So if you're looking for a way to air down your tires when you're at the trailhead without needed to stand at each individual tire and let the air out, this is going to be an excellent option for you from Rugged Ridge and you can find them right here at extremeterrain.com.

Specs. The Adjustable Tire Deflator Kit from Rugged Ridge fits every 1987-2020 Wrangler and offers you a great chance to adjust your tread grip. While fully inflated tires may help you get better gas mileage, they can be less than an asset on the trail. This kit allows you to almost instantly deflate your tires for a better ride and improved treat grip.
Construction. Made from 100% brass, these are strong, sturdy, and covered by a 5-year limited warranty from the manufacturer. They are fully adjustable in 3 PSI increments, and when you find the right setting you're able to lock the deflators where they bleed. This allows you to get the same tire pressure every time you use them for quick and accurate deflation when you're on the trail.
Application. The tire deflator kit works on all 1987-2020 Wranglers.

Really Easy and Convenient
I have used these several times since I bought them. I even dropped one in a puddle and haven't had any problems with it not working. Since there is no electrical components to them they can work in all types of conditions. 5 stars because I dropped it in a puddle and it hasn't stopped working.Helpful (0)

Good quality, a little quirky
5 stars cuz in the end they do the job well. The quirky part is that the air coming out can sound like a horn going off if it is at the right pressure. The fix is to play with the nipple that sticks out of the end until it stops squealing. Yes, I just did write that.Helpful (2)

Absolutely a must!
I will never go on another trip again without these. It takes a bit of effort to get them calibrated. But now when I am ready to air down I just put these on and go do other things. When I am ready, I take them off and my tires are at the perfect pressure. I love it!!!Helpful (10)

Good to use. Somewhat time consuming to get all 4 set right, but it's better than doing each tire separately.Helpful (14)

Theyll take air out of your tires but plan on adjusting pressure when they're done. Not exactly accurate.Helpful (10)

Easy to use
Once you set them, they are so easy to use. Sometimes they whistle. You just tape the valve and it stops whistling. Easy way to air down quick!Helpful (11)

So much better than squatting.
Takes a time or two to get them adjusted. Mine all click off within about 3 psi of what I set them too. Until you are down to about 24psi they do make a funny trumpet like sound. I recommend screwing them on then walk away from the jeep for a few minutes until they quiet down. Seriously a must have if you drive to your offroad place on street pressures.Helpful (15)
What is the reason that you can't use it on 2016 model? why 1987-2013 only?
The Rugged Ridge Adjustable Tire Deflator Kit is a universal kit and will work with all the wranglers!
Do these really only "Fit All 1987 - 2013 Wranglers"? I have a 2016.
Yes, we can confirm that this tire deflator kit specifically works on all 1987 - 2013 Wranglers.
Simple installation for anyone.
