I was playing in the Dunes in my Backyard all summer long and as you can imagine: airing down your tires to 10 psi everytime can get pretty annoying (especially, since I needed to air 'em up every night, for the drive to College).
So I was looking around for some faster method to deflate my tires, and there are a lot of products out there, e.g. Rapid Air down Valves from at least 3 different manufacturers, tire deflators in all colors and price ranges etc.

Since I didn't want to go through the hassle of changing my valves, I opted for the Staun Tire Deflators.

General overview
Staun Tire Deflators screw onto your tire valves and deflate all of your tires to your preset pressure. The preset pressure is easily adjustable from 6 to 30 psi and the setting can be changed an indefinite number of times. They come preset to 18 psi and include a little manual on how to set the shut-off pressure. Like all quality air fittings, the Staun Tire deflators are constructed of solid brass for both corrosion resistance and strength.
They cost around $55 for a set of four deflators and leather pouch.

How do they work?
Great :)
They are very accurate and it very easy to use: Screw one of the four deflators onto each of the four valves on your truck. The deflators will begin releasing air from your tires and, this is the really neat thing about them, will stop at a present pressure set by you. The adjustment of the Stauns is very easy and is controlled by the adjustment knob on the top of the deflators. To prevent changes in the pressure settings, they have a lock ring, which works pretty well, but not perfect. I somehow manage to open these things while srewing the Stauns on my valves.

More information and dealer locations:
check out Staun Products
Sun Performance distributes them and can get information where to buy them.

I have these things also, they work great. Just remember not to drive with them on!! (but getting flat tires on the beach is fun, right?).

you're getting flats with them? mhh, I have never had that, always stopped around 12-14 psi, but then again, I have never had them on, while driving, since I'm lazy and don't want to clean them afterwards :)
flat tire? yeah, I love my compressor ;D

I got mine directly from sunperformance through some connection for a good deal, but I'm sure you can find them at some 4x4 shop online or in your area.
