Hi

Can anyone recommend a good CTIS that I can have installed?

Thank you

Sorry can't help, but 130 in NYC? We need to see pics. Is it down in TriBeCa? That's the only place I've seen a 130 in NYC before. Welcome. Here is our local NYC happy hour thread. Subscribe to the thread (using the thread tools) and you'll get an e-mail whenever we plan the next get together.

The only CTIS I've seen fitted to a LR recently are on 'Oilworkers' portal converted 130. His came from Tibus off-road in Germany.... http://www.killeraxles.com/html/bolt_on_portale.html

Oilworker's build thread is most certainly worth a read.

I'm shocked. How does a previously unknown 130 get into the backyard of the HSOC undetected? Where's your force protection?

Especially what appears to be an extensive galvy chassis build up with 23" or so sized wheels.

Hi guys

I took down the photos because of the assumptions being made which are incorrect.

For CTIS, ARB makes an on-board high output 12V compressor that satisfies. You could fit Hummer H1 CTIS lines, gauges, and switches on the dash and be good to go. Just an idea.

It would be a lot more complicated than that.....

Sure. But, you could do it.... I have CTIS on my H1; it's a complicated animal, but not impossible.

Just check your tires every so often, how hard can it be?

I will explain the way the system works and why it is not simple nor practical in a Land Rover axle. It is important to understand how these are designed.

Air needs to get from the non-rotating axle components to the rotating ones to feed air to the wheels. The only reasonable way on a vehicle to be used off road is through the spindle and into the stub shafts. This requires cross drilled and bored stub shaft with high integrity sealing to the spindles. When you are designed a new axle with this in mind, it is not a big deal to make the space and ensure the items are strong enough.

In a stock Rover axle, the is not any excess strength in the stub shafts to accept cross drilling and boring and there is not any spare axial space on the spindle for the sealing and piping. You would need custom spindles, stub shafts, CVs, hub modifications and so on. The cost would exceed new custom axles so is not really practical.

Perhaps a compromise would be to install tire pressure sensors inside the tires. There are quite a few aftermarket choices for this, some with stand alone monitors that you can goober to the dash with duct tape and clear silicone.
