    35 PSI for every day driving in the front and 32 in the rear, bump it up to 40 up front and 37 in the rear when towing. Seems to give me the best tire wear and mileage.

    *OFF TOPIC* Which cab lights do you have on your truck? I've almost considered getting some for mine unless I can get a visor.

    Not sure why, but I reversed my tires pressures. I run 40 in the rear and 37 up front when towing.
