I am starting the process to outfit the new Jeep Rubicon Unlimited. I have ordered the Blue Ox base plate, and the Cool Tech wiring harness (thanks to Bill Arf's research!). However, I already have a Tire Pressure monitoring system that I recently installed on the MH by TireSafe Guard. It works great, and the sensors mount inside the rim and replace the factory valve stems. This works great as I off road in the Jeep and there is nothing to get knocked off by an errant rock.

The question is, the Jeep came with a monitoring system built in to the electronics of the Rubicon. It is not as sofisticated as the TireSafe Guard system and only alerts the driver to the possibility of a tire losing air by turing on a warning light on the dash. So what happens if I pull out the factory sensors and put in mine? Is there a way to disable the on board system to keep the dash light from being on forever? Anyone else ever have this situation with their toad??

Thanks, Sarge

I would recommend you leave the OEM sensor in, do some research as to the frequency used on it and compare to the TireSafe Guard's frequency. If they will not interfere with each other mount the tireSafe Guard sensor 180 degrees from the OEM sensors and check the tires for balance. Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Suggest you join this forum. Someone else on that forum might have experimented with the tire sensors and can give you some input. You could also try this forum and this forum.

Thanks Bill, I'm already a member of Jeep forum.com. The other two I have stopped by occasionally. Good mechanical info there, but the tech stuff is a little lacking.
