    I hesitated airing down on our last trip because I have nitro fills. I think there were a couple obstacles that I could have taken on with no issues if I had done it. When I bought my JK, it came with Nitro fills so I really don't know the benefit of having them. Is it worth it when you are airing down and then paying who knows how much to get them refilled with nitrogen? Curious to see what you guys think.

    To add to that, my hubby just has a HF compressor in his jeep that he refills with before we leave. We plan to build a big box on our trailer to keep it in at some point.

    Nitrogen is like this....it 'seeps' through the tires less easily and isn't as subject to temperature swings as regular air. If it's free and not an inconvenience then why not go with nitro? But- if it's in the least bit out of your way (as mine was)- just go regular air. Locally they charge $25 to fill the tires with nitro.

    I'm a big fan of my buddies CO2 tank I've been using, only problem is I emptied it the other night at work with a flat trailer tire and I've been too lazy to get it filled so now I have no air source. So today after wheeling I'll be doing the 25 mile ride back to town on 12psi like I used to do. It's never been a problem and I have done it too many times to count.

    I have the regulator but I'm having trouble finding a 20lb tank for a reasonable price.

    Should be able to just rent one from your local gas shop. Then you don't have to worry about your five year certs. When you bring the empty tank back after your initial fee it's just the refill fee.

    I have a Warn PowerPlant HD winch (12k lb winch with a built in compressor). It takes about 3-4 mins per tire to fill up 37" Nitto trail grapplers from 8psi to 28psi. I love it.

    I'm a C02 guy, i have the power tank setup. 250psi regulator, fills up my 35's from 15-30psi in about a minute and a half, tops. I probably get about 5 refils out of a tank.

    That was a good day when Amazon screwed up.....the news hit forums coast to coast and hundreds if not thousands were ordered before Amazon knew what hit them. It's proven to be a great compressor, I store mine in a craftsman tool box and used the soft sided case that came with it for recovery gear.

    Plus the Aluminum tank weighs next to nothing...
