Welcome

I have a Libero on a Chev3500 chassis, (Dually) and I got valve extensions but I had to bend them around so I could get them orientated properly, Bending was easy once I put them in a vice and used a torch to heat them sufficiently to make them maleable in the area of the required bend.

Hope this helps, Got the extenders @ Camping World but they are available at most truck supply stores.

I've used Link Cat's Eyes, (with s/s braided hoses), since '02.

Do you secure the Cats Eyes on one of the wheel studs?

Oops re my first post on this, no spellchecker on the App, I know there are two "L"s in malleable. (meaning in this case, the abilty to easily bend without breaking)

Libero
Steel brackets are included with the Cat's Eyes to mount the gauges to a wheel stud.
However I didn't use the brackets.....for a "cleaner look" I drilled a hole through the side of the s/s "top hat" hub covers of my wheel liners and mounted the eyes directly to the side of the cover, (using loctite on the mounting bolt/nut).

I've used Cat's Eyes for 12 years, (92k + miles), and have had no problems.

BTW, the "Crossfire Dual™ Tire Pressure Equalization System" is a similar pressure equalizing and monitoring valve system for dual tires, (see Dual Dynamics).

Thanks

I have seen this type of system but never looked closly at them but it seems like a good idea - many big trucks have this capability. I have a gizmo that allows filling the tires at the same time and puts the same pressure in each tire while filling, and I have the screw-on TPMS transmitters on each valve stem now. If I put this, or CATS-EYES, on one should be able to use one for the tire pair. Theoretically that should work? Any thoughts on this?

Camping World (or probably any truck stop) has what you need, a 3" extension for the inner wheel and a 180-degree adapter for the outer wheel. No flexible lines to leak, takes 5 minutes to install.
