Need education on TPMS

I have a 09 Wrangler X in need of tires soon and came across a full set of 2012 Rubicon wheels and tires with 300 miles. The original plan was to take his untouched wheels and bolt them right onto mine but we both just found out that they need to put his sensors into new setup. I also found out that the part number on the sensors are different between the 2. With all the changing of sensors the cost will be close to just buying new at a retailer.

Will the 2012 sensors work with my 09 if I bought new ones for him?

What would be a good option for both of us?

I would take the 2012 rubicon wheels and tires. And buy a procal module from AEV and turn off your TPMS sensors all together. They cost 149. You each buy one. Does other thing also. I will be selling my 2012 rubicon rims and tires when my jeep comes in. And I'm buying the module

Don't know about the interchangeability, but I do know that the TPMS sensors go off for all sorts of foolish reasons, especially on aftermarket tires (which run a much lower PSI than the stockers, generally.)

So I bought an AEV Procal, which will allow you to change the sensors' sensitivity. You can set em for 20 PSI, or any other #, or 0...which disables them altogether.

I'm thinking the Procal is the way to go for me but I think he wants the system working with new wheels and tires. I will take them as is and worry about it later. even if he takes them out for his new setup I think I'm in good shape as far as cost goes. Thx for the input.
