Mostly to inflate the tires back up after you've deflated them while playing in the mud, I think that's his plan.

Yes, mostly tire inflation.

Maybe air horn as a secondary reason haha.

Amazon says it weights 8 lbs.

Cant find anything really specific, at least on a quick search.

It was $260 from Amazon, best price I could find it at the time.

Got some more work done yesterday.

Got a quick connect with a female end to bolt onto my contraption.


That pretty much finishes up all the hard lines. Just have to wire the harness up, shooting to have that done Friday after work.

I also had a custom length steel braided line made for me. So it plugs to the quick connect and runs to the outside of the car.


I had been planning this since the beginning. That way if I have a ton of stuff in the back, I dont need to remove/move it so I can pull the cargo cover up to use the pump. I obviously can do that, and just disconnect the steel line.

Im going to mount the line under the rear bumper somehow, not 100% sure on what im going to do yet. Add another quick connect to that end. Then I can pull it down from the rear bumper, plug a hose into it and air up. This also makes it so I only need a hose long enough to cover half the car. That will save space and a minute amount of weight lol.

It came with a pressure sensor

So it will turn the pump off at 100 PSI, and if it falls below 70 PSI, it will turn back on.

The sensor is circled in red
