    Did you try putting some miles on it with some weight in the back? Put your wife in the bed of your car

    I think he was being sarcastic on the second car post...I've seen the guys from other countries call them cars before. :welcome: to the forum and to America! Enjoy your truck!

    my truck came with 50psi in tires from the factory.. that combined with brandy new shocks and springs can make the ride jittery over potholes n stuff

    I'm with B... drop to 38 or so and break in the truck .. should smooth out

    I run 42 in the front and 38 in the back for the street

    Running a lower pressure can also improve the longevity of the tread. Higher PSI, even at the max recommended pressure of 44psi (I believe that's what the max is for the KO's) for the stock tires, the center of the tread will wear out very quick on any truck, but especially on these since we (I) can't keep our foot out of it upon take off...lol It IS a trade off though; running lower pressure will lower MPG slightly, but will ride much smoother as well. 34-38 would be about as low as I would go though, when it begins to feel wishy washy, increase pressure.

    When I get on the NJ turnpike I can drive the "cars only" lane just fine. And when I go through the NYC tunnels it says no trucks allowed and no one seems to be stopping me!

    Attaching one photo. I know it's shit becuase I took it on my phone in front of walmart so yes I need to make great pictures soon and I will.

    PS
    No wife I am 25 years old. In the back I'm either gonna have a lot of girls or a lot of mexicans.
