With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

I find this comment amusing. In the Toyota Tacoma Owners manual (and inside the door jam) it specifies 29 PSI for the front and 32 PSI in the rear. AMAZING!

It actually makes a difference for me. If I run the factory PSI (29 in front and 32 in the rear) I get a very nice ride. When I run 32 PSI all the way around it's a bit stiffer ride.

Nice ride, but I found it murdered my MPG when I did it. I put mine back up to 45psi.
I don't mind the harsher ride. And it's only going to get worse when I get my Duratracs in 285x75x16. They only come in E load.
Super over kill, but I want those tires and IW ant 285. Should ride slightly rougher than the Flintstones' car.

Probably not. They just have the extra PSI for heavier vehicles carrying heavier loads. On a Taco all it will do is cause you to shrink ˝" from your spine compressing due to the rough ride. You'll just get a nice uneven wear at that PSI.

Very true, the recommended PSI makes the ride great!! It made vehicle feel like new, a much better improvement than the 5100's I installed.
