TPMS: GearWrench Introduces New Kit.

Recommended Posts

This is a cool tool:


From the press release:

GearWrench, a premier hand tool brand from Danaher Tool Group, announced the launch of its new Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Kit. The new kit will help with TPMS sensor maintenance during tire and rim changes.
"The TPMS kit from GearWrench offers a solution for  automotive professionals who had to previously use several different tools to  achieve the same result," said Marc Mangus, senior brand manager for  GearWrench.  "Technicians and DIY enthusiasts can rely solely on the new  kit to tighten TPMS sensors to the desired torque."
In April  2005, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued a rule  requiring automakers to install TPMS sensors in all new passenger cars and  trucks beginning in September 2007. "This is an essential tool for technicians who handle maintenance on new cars, specifically cars purchased  during the last three years," added Mangus.
The new TPMS Kit  features a sliding adjustable torque scale for easy setting and an audible  alert that indicates when the predetermined torque value has been reached. The kit also features a flexible drive for a screwdriver or torque  wrench.  The quarter-inch size can accommodate up to 120 pounds of air  pressure.  The kit includes a valve stem tool and two commonly used  sockets for TPMS sensor maintenance.  
The set  comes complete in a convenient blow mold case with a suggested retail price of  $150. Beginning in August, the GearWrench TPMS Kit will be available through mobile tool distributors.

      This may sound brusque but I have my reasons, you are welcome to have your opinion about buying new vs used and such, but please understand that I have my reasons and contribute accordingly, please.  I only write this because I know how some strings of comments can go.   

      But, to my query and I truly and sincerely appreciate everyone’s opinion, professional experience and reasons in their answers.  I am wanting/needing to replace my current truck.  I made a mistake buying it, but I did.  I have a 2021 Toyota Tacoma Limited that I absolutely hate and is the biggest POS I have ever owned and that includes the Suburban that puked a motor a month after I bought it used.  I would really prefer a mid-sized truck but given my domestic situation I also want to replace my small but very nice camper trailer with something a little bit bigger, so my girlfriend and I have more room and comfort.  Anything decent weighs in the 7000 + CGVW range topping out around 9000 for what we would likely want.  So that puts the mid-sized out of the picture since most are limited to 7000 or slightly over.  Fuel economy is also very important, but I know that a full-sized truck will not be great.  I was spoiled with my 2018 Colorado Centennial Edition which would regularly return 22+ on trips on the expressway and 24+ on rural highways.  But the transmission was one of those 8 speed beasts that did more shuddering that shifting so it was replaced by this POS Tacoma on the strong recommendation of a friend who had owned 3 Tacomas over the years and currently had a 2020.  To make matters worse, besides the dismal fuel economy, it won’t break 19 mpg on the expressway, it shudders too.

      Okay, this is getting long but you have the background and needs for a new truck.  I would prefer a new as opposed to used for some reason.  What trucks would you recommend or recommend staying away from?  Decreasing the pool of possible candidates is the very strong desire to have a moonroof.  An integrated brake control system would be nice but not necessary since I have a very nice Tekonsha unit now.  I am not a fan of Chrysler products but I am also looking for something to buy and keep for an extremely long period of time.  Thank you to all who read and respond, I a truly grateful.
