I just swaped out my tires with some rubicon take offs and while at discount tire they informed me that the spare needed to be changed out to to clear the dash warning. They said that Jeeps have been putting TPMS sensors in there spares for awhile. I was only able the cary the four tires in the jeep so left the spare at home. Well once they were done changing the TPMS sensors on the ground and I drove off the dash error cleared and everything looks great. Now Im not sure if i should take the spares back and check or not. Does anyone know for certain if the spare tire and wheels have TPMS?

my understanding is yes, people have been using the spare in their tire rotation with no issues.

Yes, all wranglers have a full-size spare. All full-size spares have a TPMS sensor.

Yes, and according to other threads I’ve read here the sensors automatically sense the proper tire position. It may take a few start cycles until the sensors get oriented.

I’ll know for sure when I rotate my tires next week (spare crossover pattern)

... until the sensors get oriented.
;)No doubt initially dizzy from the rotating tires. Somebody should tell the TPMS to "stare in one place" like figure skaters do during a spin.
