Ok, need some guidance here. I currently have an on board ARB compressor, I want to run an air chuck out to each tire (gonna hide them in the bumper to keep it clean). So my question is, can I place the bleeder valve in line w/ one of the air lines running to the chuck, or should I have a completely separate line that runs from the manifold over to the bleeder so it bleeds evenly. I feel like if its inline it will pull from that tire more than the others...is this the case, am I over thinking this? I have a 8 valve manifold so I can have one line per chuck, one for the bleeder valve and one for the gauge in the cab, so that's not a problem, it would just look cleaner inline...but I want it right

Which ARB compressor do you have? Their basic compressor that comes in their locker kit isn't suitable for secondary duty for refilling aired down tires.
