I may order the 1504 system.
What does the nicer 1506 display do that the 1504 display does not do?

Should be the same Dill #1900 display that has eight sockets.

Installation location needs to be carefully considered so it is not in direct sunlight. We had to use the included external magnetic mount antenna and put it on the rear Curt hitch. We had to lengthen the supplied coax cable with parts from Radio Shack.

In theory, I could have used just one display and switched it between the tow vehicles as the receiver plugs and tire senders could have had eight different letters of the alphabet. There would have been no spare capability unless I ordered ten or twelve different lettered senders and receiver ships.

Monday morning quarterbacking or hindsight is wonderful.

I thought about installing the Dill TPMS monitor in one of the 3 cupholders in the center console. I don't know why Toyota thinks everyone will have 2, 3, or 4 drinks each.
Uh-oh- our Radio Shack closed-
I think I have decided to forego the spare sensors- If you check the spare with a gauge at home before you start on your trip, it is not likely to go down just hanging around in the spare carrier-
The factory installed TPMS does on pickups does not include the spare- just the 4 that are on the ground-
I have a buddy with a fifth wheel who is trying to sell me on a different brand TPMS with monitors that screw to the valve stems.
May not get any TPMS or Centramatic balancers now. I'm spending quite a bit of money on this project. I've got ordered and on the way what I have to have to continue camping. I can get TPMS and Centramatic balancers later. As is, I am better off than I was with the 16" wheels, Load range E truck tires, and new chrome lug nuts- still a needed and beneficial upgrade-

I need to find a better way to mount the Dill #1900 display using the external antenna and the hard wire kit.
I can't deal with this wire dangling.
Hard to believe there is no smooth flat surface anywhere in this truck but the glass.
I guess another option would be a bean bag GPS mount.

Here is where I mounted the Dill TPMS display above the Insight Engine monitor display and the DirecLink NE manual brake override control. The external antenna lead and power for the Dill display were brought up in the door post trim.

I'm gonna try to mount it in the dash like a stereo or a/c controls.
I just don't like suction cup stalk mounts. I like everything to appear as if it came from the factory in the vehicle. One hindrance to installing it is the power coming into the bottom rather than into the back of the display. I wonder if the is such thing as a USB elbow or L plug.

Agreed the Dill display is s dash hog.

I got a 90 degree antenna connector and it helps.

My power connection is on the bottom.

I don't use the glass suction cup mount, doing Velcro to a suitable spot.

Yes, there are USB mini "Ell" adapters and cables with "Ell" connectors.

A search on Amazon will turn up plenty.

The straight in antenna connection is not a problem if I mount it in dash and use the supplied external antenna. The power coming in at the bottom is a problem.

The SenDel wheels need the 0.453" valve diameter Dill TPMS sender.
