TPMS

Stupid question maybe but I just have to ask.

2017 JKU Rubi--Does the stock spare have a pressure sensor on it? And what happens if I put different tires and wheels on without them?

Reason I ask is I'm gonna get new wheels and tires soon and I'd rather sell the stock stuff with the sensors in them.

The spare should have the sensor, just like other wheels. If you put new wheels without the sensors, you will have a warning continuously on your dashboard.

I'm not sure whether Procal and such let you turn it off on 2017 model.

So should I just get new ones for the new wheels or use the old ones? Will the new units need to be flashed into the computer or are they plug and play? I think it better to go new.

Go with new. They are plug and play. You'll just need to drive around a bit to get them to register. And make sure to get the ones for your Year model. They switched sensors in 12 or 13. So not all JKs use the same ones.

Swapping out runs the risk of breaking them. Plus, someone buying your old wheels/tires might prefer they had sensors.

Obviously, if you don't put sensors in the new wheels, your TPMS will go nuts.
Procal or Flashcal can disable that on some. As mentioned above.
You'd have to check with the manufacturer of either to know for sure if they work with your year.
