Dana CTIS ??
The Dana/spicer team is now offering a Central Tire Inflation System (CTIS) like what is offered for the Hummer and Duece and a half trucks for the big-rig crowd. Has anyone ever seen this system adapted to a mini-dana axle like we have ?
The only way I can see is tap a air fitting at the differential, bore a 1/4" tunnel through the center of the axle, tap a rotating fitting at the spider gear-side running through to the axle end, then straight to a hollowed-out valve stem with a small counter weight on the opposing wheel end.
If you don't know, the CTIS allows you to push button adjust all 4-8 tires from inside the cab-full air-up, full air-down, highway, sand, or custom, with a small air gauge letting you know what the computer has adjusted your tire pressure to via your request. It has an in-cab display, central air compressor and air tubing running to each wheel, through the hub, connected to the wheel.
Anyone else have any ideas ?
