FORD comparable TPMS

Probably a rhetorical question but, has anyone suggestions as to source for TPMS for my 2018 F250? The truck has tow package and monitors the truck tires and would monitor trailer tires if compatible sensors are installed. I inquired about this when I first took delivery of the truck and after a bit of prodding the dealer gave me a quote sheet of sorts....$500 and no mention of installation. I didn’t pursue it at the time because I got the impression they weren’t interested in doing it and I thought that the price was a bit much. The TPMS on my other vehicles , in the past, has “saved my bacon” a couple of times so I will definitely get this done soon. The trailer is new and I am keeping track of the pressures but stuff happens...

Your truck has to have the Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera system. You can add TPMS only to it and not the trailer camera with this kit: https://accessories.ford.com/kit-tpms-sensor.html

You can find it a bit less than MSRP on eBay.

The kit linked to in CRH's post above integrates the trailer tire monitoring very nicely with the Ford in-dash information system. Unless you can mount and dismount tires you'll need to have a tire shop take care of mounting the wheel sensors but other than that the installation and set up is a snap and definitely a DIY proposition.

Too late to edit my post above but wanted to add that your dealer is quoting you list price for the kit. Since you bought a truck from him, he should be willing to give you a reasonable discount on an accessory...say 10%. Most dealers I've dealt with will do that without blinking.
