Has anyone used the under rocker air tank as a source for compressed air. I'm getting ready to swap out my oval shaped tank, for the longer cylindrical one, so I can fit the deployable side steps, and was wondering if anyone has ever installed a "t" fitting on the fill line that could be run to a separate manual isolation valve and 1/4" air chuck for connecting an air line? This would be for VERY intermittant use for things like reinflating tires after use on sand, or possibly for an off road tire repair. There's almost 10 liters of 300 psi air in that tank at most times and the tank is isolated from the shocks unless it it changing the ride height. Good idea, bad idea? Oh, BTW LR took out a patent for an automatic tire inflation deflation system on RR's using the suspension air tank and compressor in 2017. Not looking for anything near as fancy as that, just a way to access the air in the tank for manual filling. there does appear to be some kind of a kit for doing this at Atlantic British.
Optional tire inflation kit allows you to use your ARB air compressor to quickly plug in a heavy duty airline and inflate tires after a day on the trail or inflation after patching a flat tire. - 171302
