If you order from 68 Overlander you can ask him to include them free of charge. All he can do is say no.

I got my system from 68overlander.

The lock nut kit was $10?

They are just nuts that screw all the way down on the valve stem and then you back them to the sensor once it's installed.

You could probably go to a bicycle shop and get them cheaper. Be sure to get a small wrench that fits and keep it in your vehicle. A wrench comes with the kit I got.

Lew,
So what you are telling me is all the systems that we are talking about are prone to problems.

So which ones work?

Realizing that anything mechanical or electrical may be prone to problems, and that there will invariably be something that comes along that is better, I have no regrets with the PressurePro system. It works as advertised, and does everything I expected.

I have used the SmartTire system for several years and on three trailers as well as my tow truck. They tell you the tire pressure and temperature. Recently, while towing my Airstream, the alarm sounded and showed the tire pressure to be 36(I maintain at 65). Fortunately, I was a half block from a tire repair shop so just pulled in and fixed the problem which required a new tire. I have never had any problems with the system and I travel around 25K miles/year.

Well I finally took the plunge...ordered PressurePros for the Bambi (single axle) from 68 Overlander by phone...They should be here in time for a long weeknd trip this weekend...I wanted to get them for this trip as a trial run before our longer after-Chirstmas-through-New-Year's trip... Our truck has a factory tire pressure monitoring system of its own, so just got sensors for 2 wheels... I think I'm going to feel al whole lot better if I know I'm losing pressure in a tire before it's too late. Parannoid? Maybe. Prudent. Yes. I'll let you know how they perform on this trial run.

PressurePro TPMonitor and Sensors arrived today! (Purchased from 68 Overlander...) Yea! Installation is a snap and we are making a trial run with them tomorrow for a long weekend. So cool to be able to hit a button and see what the tire pressure is... I'll report back as to how they performed.

I'm completing the beta testing on this system, and should have my final results in a week or so...........................STAY TUNED!
Lew, how's the testing coming along?

Testing is going well, but I have to put the little buggars thru some extremes, so this week I'll be freezing them and then baking them to simuate zero *F usage, and also 120*F temps. They have already been submerged and driven in a few downpours.

If they still work after that, I'll post shots of the system, prices, etc.

Curb whacking

Lew, don't forget to whack them against the curb a few times as well as drop a lug wrench on them.
