You can have the TPMS!! Had it on my ram and it constantly warned me if my pressure dropped below 80psi. Very glad to see my new 3500 doesnt have it!!

I was pretty happy when my GMC 3500 didn't come with a TPMS system.

I was disappointed when my Denali 3500 didn't come with the TPMS system! I bought the after market Tire Minder system from Camping World and it has already warned me of a low tire on our camper and on the truck.

Well new to here but not to forums. I've been pulling 5th wheels for several years now and just upgraded to a 2016 3500HD Duramax. The truck is amazing however my ignorance is now going to show. My 2500 had TPMS and I honestly thought something was wrong when I couldn't find tire pressures on my new 3500. I talked to the salesman and kinda shamed him into admitting that he didn't advise me that the TPMS was deleted on my truck. That being said he just called me last week and get the go ahead to install the sensors and reprogram my DIC to accept TPMS free of charge. After reading many post, both pro and con, I'm seriously considering canceling the TPMS installation and just add more TST 507 sensors for my truck tires. I know this aftermarket system well and trust it with my 12,000lb 5th wheel. I honestly thought I was shorted on my new purchase but am now thinking the OEM will not provide me the same protection that I know I'll get with the TST 507 system. My other concern is after they install and activate the OEM TPMS in my new truck then it will become a nonstandard headache.

All this being said is the OEM TPMS really unstable and just going to end up being a real problem in the future??

where are you getting that the OEM TPMS system is unstable? The primary issue I've read about it is that, depending on the GM dealer, you may or may not be able to get the lower limits set as low as you may want.

I guess unstable may have been a poor word choice. Question I have is why so many cons to the OEM TPMS. Is it high failures, false alarms or what? Does the OEM TPMS systems monitor high and low pressure or just low pressure? If I follow through and have TPMS added to my 3500HD will I be setting myself for issues in the future?

In regards to the aftermarket alarm limits I recall that my TST 507 manual stepped me through the actual value needed based on cold tire pressure. They had me set the high and low limits to a specific percentage of the normal pressure.

I had two sensors fail on me in my 08' and when I traded up to the 12' that was one of the reasons I went to the 3500. I just don't need them as I frequently check my tire pressure. To each his own, just my opinion.

I wouldn't be without a TPMS, and the dealer reprogrammed mine on the rear limit no questions asked.

So is this something that can be added to a 3500 drw, like the factory setup that displays on the center instrument panel on the 2500's?

I test drove a 2017 f-350 drw king ranch today just to see what the competition has to offer and I got to say, as far as the gadgetry on the interior/exterior gm is behind. They come with tpms for the truck and trailer, standard. They have push button start, front, tailgate and 3rd brake light cams as well as side mirror blind spot and 360* birds eye view. Electric telescoping and tilting steering wheel, electric extending mirrors, heated rear seats, actual cooled seats not just ventilated, and the off-road gauges in the instrument panel, like the kind you can only get with the off road package on the gm's. And a big one for me, rear hvac vents. I don't know how gm can charge $75k for a truck with no rear vents. They also have a button that drops the tailgate from inside the cab and massaging seats.

I couldn't ever own a powerstroke and the transmission had inconsistent shifts on pretty much every shift, I don't know if that's because it's new or because I'm used to the Allison. The ride was horrible and my son says the seats are harder. I also can't stand the exterior styling and I don't know about an aluminum truck yet. But I like that you can get all these options. I don't know why gm doesn't at least offer it, I know I'd pay more for most of these gadgets. Granted the platinums are already at $80k msrp vs the $72-75k for a Denali.
