TPM System works a treat.
 
Did a 1600km trip this weekend towing 3 dirt bikes, tows great, didn't really notice they were there, anyway, traveling through the I think the Goulburn river national park from Merriwa towards Mudgee on comes the low tyre pressure warning light and chime, you can watch your tyre pressure drop on the EVIC as you drive along, mine was dropping rapidly... the left rear had a sharp stone sticking out of the mighty Kuhmo, luckily I had some tyre plugs, albeit next to the spare, under everything, and a compressor, so we were soon back underway. For me the TPM system saved the tyre and maybe even the wheel as god knows how long I would have kept going for, being wet with trailer crashing around etc, a flat rear can be hard to notice till its to late....

Didn't help my wife who was driving our WH at the time. I was away and the light was on for 2 days before she f$%ked the tire, then complained to me, what shut her up was when I asked how long it had been beeping at her with the dash light on. Ha ha. Good to hear the new ones work when you don't have the missus driving.

I am going to buy 4 new wheels and tyres 285/40-22 along with new TPMS for each new wheel.
My question is how do you address each new TPMS to each location on the vehical?
As I will sell the standard Overland wheels and tyres as a complete set.

That is a good question because the Manual mentions nothing about training the sensors. So question is, if you rotate the tyres, how does the sensor know?

The sensors automatically learn their locations via signals transmitted to the main module (located in rear wheelwell). When signals do not match (after rotating, for example) the sensors will re-learn their new location (within 20 minutes continuously driving above 24 km/h.

Thanks Milous, the Jeep system is more intelligent than we give it credit for.

We have the poverty pack Laredo with only the low pressure warning light apparently but a number of times now by pressing the back button on the EVIC button the TPMS screen comes up and nicely shows 0.0 pressure on all 4 wheels...
If I wanted to show you it wouldn't do it but it is a surprise at times.
Obviously the software is closely related.
