2014 tpms

Any GC guru's out there know if I can get away without any TPMS sensors in my second set of tires/wheels that I'll be using for off road/winter?

The TPMS system in the '14 actually tells you the tire pressure, not sure if the limited's/overlands 11-13 did that or if that matters.

I dont care about a warning light but dont want some alarm chirping at me for 5 minutes everytime I start it up

Law in my state is ok, this is more of a technical opposed to legal question

There are two TPMS systems, base and premium. The premium has always provided tire pressure. Base just an indicator. They use the same wheel sensors regardless, but the STR8s are little different.

You will get a chime and a flashing indicator when first starting up, the indicator goes solid after awhile, no other chimes. Some have reported that after several drives the TPMS just gives up and doesn't bother with indicators.

That was very helpful, I appreciate it! Now to figure out which AT tires to get...

I think my plan is to take off the limited wheels and tires intact and mount up ATs on some 18" GC alloys I bought off ebay last year w/o the TPMS, that way if I ever sell the limited I'll throw the mint wheels/tires on
