One More "Air Down" Question

I have a 2012 Sahara Unlimited, completely stock. I am new to Jeeps and new to off-roading. I bought a portable air compressor and these little brass gadgets to air down. Question: Since I was upplied with four of these brass "deflators" should I set each at a different pressure and use the same deflator on all four wheels, one at a time, or do most people set all four at a desired psi and then place them on all at once on each wheel to hurry the process? Thanks everyone.

Set them all at the same pressure and go around and put them all on. Will save you some time. Those deflators have a tendancy to loosen up sometimes so tighten them good and check the pressure setting occasionally.

the intent is that you use all 4 to drop the pressure easily. Screw them on, disconnect your swaybar and then go unscrew them. Some people though will only use 2 at a time, basically running 2 sets with different pressures if they do a different config like for a beach vs the trails.

What compressor did you buy that had this with it? I've been wanting to buy a portable compressor.

He stated that he bought the compressor AND these little brass things. Am of the thought that they did not come as a set.

Staun makes deflators, might be the brand he has. Don't know.

I had nothing but trouble with those little deflators. Minwe were Oasis. They'd either stop before they got to the pressures at which I'd preset them, or they wouldn't stop. I fonally just got a Currie gauge setup, no muss, no fuss. Works perfectly every time. Faster, too. Only thing faster is the secondary vale stems.
