TPMS on 2005 WK Limited and vibration

Ok, I thought the Tire Pressure Monitoring system was standard on the 2005 Grand Cherokee Limited. I just got an 05 Limited with 21,800 miles, and it has all the bells and whistles, and if I hit the STEP button for the car information center, I get stuff like MPG, Trip Odometer, and other stuff, but nowhere do I see the tire pressure. Are my sensors faulty, or am I hitting the wrong button? (The jeep didnt come with a manual, but I just ordered one on ebay)

One other question.... when accelerating in my Jeep (HEMI), somewhere in 2nd or 3rd gear (I think) I feel a vibration in the floor beneath my feet. It isn't a major vibration, but its definitely there. When it shifts out of that gear, the vibration is gone. Any ideas on what it could be? I am kinda paranoid that my Jeep will break. Good thing it is under factory warranty until December, but still, I don't want to go to the shop too often with this beast.

Thanks.

TPMS is optional:

As for the vibration, do a search for "HEMI Shudder" here or at JeepsUnlimited and I'm sure you'll get a lot of information. The consensus seems to be that it's common and hard to get rid of.

If you have an 05+ WK then you have the TPMS. You just have the basic version instead of the Optional version T-Rated pointed out.

You have the Tire Pressure Monitor System, base - with warning lamp (auto relearn system)

Basically all it does is tell you when your tires have too little or too much pressure with no indication of which tire it is.

One more question on TPMS. I just ordered the 17" Jeep Chrome wheels (moduflex) for my 2005 WK Limited, and the seller said they don't have the tire pressure sensors on them. Will this be a problem? Like will it cause the Jeep to give me constant warnings about tire pressure? I don't really need TPMS anyways.

Switch the sensors over from the old wheels. And, yes, you will get the annoying warning unless you pull the fuse. I recommend switching the stems over since it's a handy feature.
