F550 & F600 Chassis

Evening all. Do any of you know if the Ford 2023 F550 and F600 Ford chassis have TPMS systems installed in the tires from the factory? If so is there anyway to display the individual tire pressures ? I cant find anything of reference.
Thx

I was very tired of the wonky factory system on my king ranch.
I added aftermarket tpms to it for about $20 that told individual pressure and temperature with custom alarms up, down and temp.

The F550 does not come with a TPMS on any tire.



I'm not sure about the F600.

I followed Ducks advice and ordered an aftermarket that has through sensors and also tire temp etc. biggest problem I have is trying to fit em on so they are accessable as for some reason the factory stems on outside rims are facing to the inside through one of the aluminum wheel holes..

Thatís the way stems on duals are done. I had the dealer break mine down, rotate the stems 180 degrees and then re-balance before the PDI.

several of us have installed the cat eye air equalizer on the duals on the rear. Makes it to much easier to air up and you can tell at a glance if your pressure is ok. I went the extra step and installed TPMS valve stem caps because the cat eye system has 3 stems per side. 1 shared and 2 individual. This allows me to put the tpms on each individual tire and still have a valve stem to air up/equalize. I know its overkill but come talk to me after you've experienced a couple blow outs.

I can confirm the F600 ony my '23 Magnitude RS3d does not have them. I used tireminder TM77 with 6 sensors to remedy this.

You answered my question to some extent before I had a chance to ask it. I was really going to ask that since the nut on my outer stem is on the outside, has anyone tried to loosen it, spin the valve 180 degrees and then tighten it back? Obviously you would lose some air pressure that you would need to add back....but otherwise....???

The bead had to be broke to rotate the stem because there was a not inside as well as outside.
