    This is what they run at RA. Drive paved road to and from. They also run RA in the snow

    I find the 4 psi difference is too big in a SCREW and I also have a tonneau, rack, and recovery gear at a minimum (so 250 lbs). In that case, I generally run my rears down 1 psi or 2 and it feels perfect.

    When I am running a tent and camping gear as well, I run even pressures.

    yup - more load and the rear and you need a few more PSI

    I'll second this as someone with a static 250lbs in the bed. From April to November the truck is on the beach almost everyday, mostly soft stuff. I don't feel like having to air up and have found that 30(f) 28(r) serves me well. If the truck is going back out on the high way I go back to 35F / 32R cold. A few PSI on the SCREW does make a difference.

    This is what I started running after Raptor Assault as well. I also used Forscan to reset the TPMS to stop the low pressure warnings (after learning hexadecimal notation). Better traction/larger contact patch, and better ride (purely subjective).

    I think about 8 psi low triggers the warning light. Nominal is 38 psi. Running the rears at 28 psi set it off.

    This is very helpful, guys!!
    Here is our [me n 4 Labs] life: muddy icy dirt for 10 miles then a foot or so up to the jumpoff. Nobody's tracks but mine.

    Do you know where this is located in ForScan? I'd love to set my triggers to 28 or 30psi
