    Walmart or most tire stores can sell a generic TPMS and program it to your truck. Walmart charges $35 around here, but of course, their Auto Care Centers are closed right now.

    To install a rubber one, tire beads needs to be broken and installed from backside then tire balanced(ideally). Might as well get it replaced the right way and save some money in the long run if it is a tpms setup.

    Looking at the pic it is a tpms valve stem.

    I removed the broken valve stem and replaced it with a normal one temporary, until I can order a new tpms sensor with a stem.
