Central tire inflation?

Is there any such thing? I've subscribed to Four Wheeler for years and never seen an ad or heard a mention. Sure would be cool.

Are you talking about something like this?

I am sure you can make something with the same effect for much cheaper, but that is an example.

You can do things the right way or the wrong way.
Or you can do it MY way...which is like the wrong way, only faster.

Yeah, there is, Hummer H1's have it:

Central Tire Inflation System (CTIS)
Air from an on-board compressor runs to the center of the hub and into the air chamber of the tire, allowing you to increase or decrease tire pressure on the fly with the touch of a button.




As for whether or not this could be retrofitted to a Jeep, I have no idea, but I'm sure it would be pretty expensive.

Expensive or not, it would be quite a nice feature!

Combine that with the ORO AiRock and SwayLoc or Currie Anti-Rock and you'd never need to get out of the Jeep when approaching or leaving a trail!!
