(Probably could have sold it on eBay for $100!!) The metal coffee can is my reservoir for the gear lube or whatever I'm filling. That way I don't have to clean out the whole thing when I'm done. The green cap is the Schrader valve, I use my compressor turned down to about 20-22 psi and use a tire chuck to fill it. I watch the gauge on the top, and stop at the correct pressure. The black valve controls the flow of lube. I can get over two quarts of gear oil or the entire coffee can dispensed on one air charge. Just my .02!

EDIT: A friend keeps telling me I can't use synthetic oil in my rear diff because I have the Z71 package with the G80 locker in it. Any truth in this? I want to use Castrol Syntech (because I can get it locally and can afford it right now)
