I often have a low air light warning on my 2008 Nitro. My wife's 2011 Jeep Liberty does the same even though the air pressure is ok. I am buying new tires soon, can I just have the senders removed and put regular valve stems on it?

The PiP wheels (or any wheels for that matter) will accept either regular valve stems or TPMS (there are very rare cases where this is not true, but not in your case). When people get new wheels, they generally swap over the TPMS and if they keep the stock wheels they put regular valve stems in them.

Yes the wheels can use regular rubber valves but that eliminates the safety of tpms & also eliminates the preventive nature
of knowing if your tire is losing air as you drive until it is too late.

Usually if you buy new tires from a Tire Shop they will program new TPMS at no charge at a much lower price and guarantee them. I would at least compare of the cost of both options.
