I didn't post to exchange insults.(sorry for the country club remark) I just want others to be aware about this before they buy and I know GM monitors this forum so they can also be aware of my concerns.

Its funny that whats a big deal to some is a non issue to others. I've been purchasing trucks for over 40 yrs (mostly GM) so this isn't my first rodeo. I am normally overly educated about every aspect of a vehicle before I purchase...but this one slipped by me.

If concerns aren't expressed, GM or any other mfg won't get the message.

There's nothing wrong with expressing your concerns. My post was made because of personal experiences in which I found the factory unit to be inferior and frustrating. We pull a large 5th wheel trailer and I wouldn't be without a TPMS on the trailer. We use the TST (Trucking System Technology) which can add enough sensors to cover an 18 wheeler (which allows you to even put them on your spare if you want). They offer two types of sensors, one that is flow through and one that is not. I prefer the flow through sensors.

It's totally DIY, and easy at that. Price varies depending on the number of sensors you want, and they have package deals. Google them for best price because some vendors do offer a discount.

I've purchased the system Tom S. is talking about in the past. Camping World used to have a good selection. Not sure if they still do.

I bought my 3500 because it didn't have the tpms system. Maintain your vehicle and you wont have any problems, tpms was designed for stupid and lazy people.

I'm going to have to disagree with you there. Noone, regardless of intelligence or ambition can sense that a wheel is on the way down with a slow leak.

You can check the pressures before you pull out and at every stop along the way (which I'm sure you do right?), but that doesn't help when you are an hour into a four plus hour trip between fill ups.

I just purchased a system from TST for my dually. The 507 system with internal sensors. For that system and 8 sensors I paid $576.

I'm a believer of TPMS, I have saved 3 tires.
