Tire Pressure..29 Front & 32 Rear???

The inside of the driver's door says the front tires should be inflated to 29 lbs & the rear tires to 32 lbs. What is everyone's thoughts on this and what do you keep your tires at? I had mine at 35 front and 35 rear for a little while what I thought was for gas saving measures but it seemed like the MPG went down.

Thanks

Look on the tire for the air pressure range , I would go with what the tires show. And do not go over max pressure. I wouldn't rely on the sticker. What if those tires aren't matched to the sticker. I've got 20's on my truck & the sticker doesn't match.

I'm running the stock Rugged Trails on the OR package. The tires say max. cold pressure is 35 lbs.

I run 30 lbs front and rear all the time around town and highway when light. When hauling a load or pulling the trailer on highway trips I usually bump the rear up to 32 lbs. With these tires the truck seems to hunt a little with 32 lbs in the front?

Mine are also recomended at 29 PSI. I tried to do that and I thought the tire looked soft. I inflated them to 35 PSI; The max pressure on the tire is 44 PSI. I figured 35 was a happy medium.
