Tyre Deflators

Staun Tyre Deflators

 

Today I purchased a four pack of tyre deflators. I went with Staun brand as I like the little leather pouch they come in. The Staun tyre deflators come set up at 18psi and are adjustable down to 6psi. I will stick to the 18psi, this should be a good start for my tyres. I also picked up a tyre pressure gauge to ensure the psi is correct. Looking forward to testing them out.

New 4WD Toys

I purchased a couple of new toys for my next off road adventure. A 160L Portable Compressor Kit and a Recovery Kit. Currently have a tow ball on the back with a key locked pin, which I do not have a key for. I’m going to grind the pin off and purchase a new lockable pin for about AU$30. Once this is removed, I will purchase a Hitch Receiver. Hitch Receiver’s are needed when 4WDing, incase you get stuck, the Hitch Receiver allows a Winch Strap to be tied to the vehicle to be winched out of trouble.

On the look out for a deflator, looking at the Stuarn brand. I like the Stuarn compact case, which can be stored in the glove box. Would also need to purchase a cheap pressure gauge tester. Next on the list is a UHF handheld two pack, 3w or higher.

First blog post

Learning the basics of 4WDing.

My first blog post woohoo this is exciting. I have started this blog to track my adventures in my 2011 Jeep Wrangler JK. I brought the ‘Beast’ just over a month ago and in this time I have purchased the official mud floor mats front and rear, which were an excellent price. Considering I was firstly looking at custom made mats for around AU$320. The official Jeep mats were AU$218. I have also purchased a sunshield cover but had to return it as it was too high for the Wrangler windscreen. Still on the look out for one of these, preferably official merchandise. If anyone out there knows of where to purchase one of these that actually fits, that would be great!
