    I already have to clear that damn code every start up due to a bad sensor - so I guess that wont change. Hope I won't have to do it 4 times though... hah

    Bought it with 80000ish miles. Just rolled 170000. Rebuilt the frontend and changed the fluids. Noticed the master cylinder is leaking and its time for Z71 rear springs.

    I agree with Nate. Now's the time to have new ones installed while you're not actually using the wheels. BTW, you won't have four separate warnings for each sensor, just that one for the TPMS system fault.

    Or, for the price of the four new sensors, you can get a spoofer box thing that sends four "good" signals to the TPMS computer at all times, mimicking operating sensors and good tire pressures. If you swap wheels often or maybe just for the seasons and don't wanna worry with the sensors or relearning them to the TPMS system, this could be your answer. You'd have to actually check and maintain your tire pressure, like the good ol' days.

    @Jolly Roger installed this and, AFAIK, once he worked out the bugs (loose power wire?), it has been working great since. He used a $10 power converter to keep the module hardwired for power instead of keeping it plugged into a USB port.

    Picked the wheels up this morning. Installed and gave her a nice cleaning since it's a nice 50 degree winter day. Really happy with the result after the upgrades last few months. I need to get sensors and new nuts still ;) then I'm on to new headlights. Maybe level/small lift as well. Open for suggestions :)

    Looks good but shoot a coat of paint on the trailer hitch.

    Replaces the autoride springs so it doesnt depend on air shocks for the correct spring rate. Stops the highway wobble/drifting. Ill still keep the aftermarket air shocks for extra load help.

    I swear, the NBS wears the wheels from the newer gens better than the newer gens. It looks like it's sitting pretty good as-is. Doesn't look saggy or anything. The driver side may be a little lower, as expected. I'd just cranks the torsion key(s) to either level it front to back or at least level the driver side with the passenger side. I prefer a little rake for load and aerodynamic purposes, so I'd just pick up that front driver corner a hair to match the passenger side. IMO, go up more than where it is now and the tires will look too small.
