Aftermarket TPMS for both truck & trailer?

My 2004 Ram does not have factory TPMS. I am looking to add an aftermarket system to both it and my trailer. Has anyone had any luck using two different 4-sensor systems? I'm assuming I would need to get sets that run on different frequencies.
I found a couple of 8 sensor systems on Amazon that are VERY expensive, just wondering if there is a cheaper (but still functional!) solution out there?

My 2006 GMC 2500 HD didn't come with a TPMS system either. I went with an 8 sensor system. Yes it was not cheep but does work for the truck and trailer. I went with the TST system.

EEZ is another brand, and supports multiple sensors, and has the option of turning off the trailer display when not towing....you see just the truck.....push a button, and back in business monitoring both.....they offer both non flo thru, and flow thru sensors....a lot of folks take the non flo thru anti theft covers off to keep from using the special wrench for installing and removing, and that makes the sensors footprint smaller...

I didnít want one more monitor on the dash so I went with Tire Minder Smart TPMS it uses an app on either my Galaxy or My wifeís Apple phone. Had it for about 5k miles and work great.

My truck has one but what about this one for the trailer? https://www.amazon.com/Favoto-Monito...s%2C164&sr=8-3


it's listed for cars and wonder if it would work for the trailer.

#1 If its listed for autos, it the sensors probably are not strong enough the send the signal from the TT to the dash of your car. #2 It's cheap, real cheap. When you are sitting on the side of I-95 with your tire blown off and the wheel-well shredded, you will wish you had not gone cheap. Buy something decent like what as been recommended above, you'll will be glad you spent a little extra in the long run.

I've been using the EEZ Tire for 2 years now and it works great. Can be set for up to 22 tires. I have it set down in my console because you don't have to actually monitor it, you will hear the alarm if a tire go's below the set limit.
Mine are set to 59 psi and it works very well.
I wouldn't tow without it!

I have used the Tireminder for 2 seasons now and am happy with it. I find it relatively simple to use and adjust when necessary. In talking with fellow travellers there are a number of good ones out there that seem to work well.
