    There isn't a "correct" pressure really-Depends on terrain, conditions, weight. 15 is probably more than enuf for most tho-and much lower and you probably want to think about beadlocks

    Scratches, dents, and junkyard parts.
    I'm in agreement with the above replies. Another thing to maybe think about is different pressures front to rear. I usually run 15psi in the front, and 12psi in the rear if my bed is mostly empty because our trucks are just SOOO light in the rear.

    I air down to 12 front 10 rear.
    But I have a single cab on 35's so take that with a grain of salt.
