Yeah. I mean, I can live without it, and I'll probably end up doing something to get rid of the damn blinking light. But it would be nice to have something notify me when the tires are over/under inflated so maybe I get more miles out of them (considering I just spent $200 more for tires this time around and they were smaller!), and maybe better gas mileage too. I'm too lazy or don't have time to pop all the caps off and check pressure once a week or whatever. One tire was always dropping to 25 PSI and didn't look any different than the ones at 40 in my eyes. So short of a TPMS or manually checking each tire I never know until they're low enough to affect handling or wear wrong.
And if I were to fix the system it's better to go aftermarket! Not only is it cheaper, but you get more functionality and reduced maintenance costs!
That Orange system displays individual tire pressures AND temp so you know exactly which one is low instead of guessing, and sensors are only $31 to replace. hmmmmm.... A sensor that reads both pressure AND temperature is 1/4 the price of the Toyota ones?!?
Guess spending nearly $30k on the truck wasn't enough.
