What I'm trying to solve for is going on the beach on Cape Cod/Martha's Vineyard/Chappaquiddick -- I get an Over-Sand Vehicle Pass but the sand is pretty heavy and need to drop PSI to <15psi to get through it. I'd love to be able to quickly drop all 4 tires (deflators) and quickly re-inflate (this compressor, I think) all while being remote (not near power). Any thoughts here?
Finally, did you have good success cutting down your antenna? I'm a little concerned about doing that, but would like to know what process you followed to make that workable?
If you have any other good experiences/advice, I'd love to hear it.

I think (not sure) it can be mounted. It is powered by the battery in the Jeep. Leaving the engine running, connect the compressor to the battery and a ground (like you'd jump a car) and hit the power switch. Viola! Compressed air.
I was knew to all of this, but it quickly becomes old hat. The deflators are a must. I air down to 20PSI from 38 and by the time I've screwed on the last one, the first one is ready to come off. It really only takes minutes to air down and back up. But I'm running the standard 32" tires. Bigger tires take longer. I carry the compressor in its bag in the back and stow my deflators with the compressor (so I don't lose them).
The antenna is easy. Take a grinder with a cutting wheel and cut it to length. File the new tip into a bit of a cone and put the ball back on. If you do a Google search "Adventures with Tankie" you'll find my build thread on the Wrangler Forum. All mods and adventures to date are documented there. I've done things that a novice can do. Haven't done the hard core lifts/tires/etc. just little things to build knowledge and experience.
Always happy to answer questions.
