tpms sensors on lifted truck

about to get my truck lifted and wanted to know if it was even worth it to get my tpms sensors changed out from my stock tires and wheels to my new set?

Depends if the PSI rating on the new tires is equal to what the Door Sticker says. Otherwise, you'll have a TPMS light and message regardless.

it depends on if you wanna look at your tire light or not. if you can keep your aftermarket wheels at same pressure as what the stock ones are at it would be worth swapping them over.

correct, some of the 08's did not have sensors. and if your tuned,H&S has a tire pressure calibrator that you can adjust the psi they are supposed to be at or totally disable it for 100 bux. but thats only if you have h&s

I went to get a flat tire fixed at the dealership yesterday and after it was repaired and aired up, I drove away and when I was a block away from the dealership, the TPMS light illuminated. Went back to the dealership and the tech cycled the key and made my truck re-learn the current PSIs in all four tires. I'm assuming that with the stock TPMS unit and knowing the correct sequence of cycling the key and whatever other shenanigans he did, you can get your truck to learn the current PSI of your aftermarket tires.

Correct, job 1's did not have the TPMS installed prior to it becoming mandatory. Look on your door sticker to see if it was made in early 07.
