Let'* not kid anyone here.. If you have the pump, you know the score...

Pump is very slow since it'* designed for strut inflation. But in a pinch or on the fly it works just fine.

Honestly, it wouldn't be that hard to "third party" this one. One of them 12 volt jobbers you get at the parts store, some pump and interior trunk modding.......

Hmmmmmm.......
