My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
It says 50 psi on the actual tire.
That is the max pressure the tire is rated for at the maximum load the tire is rated to carry. The vehicle manufacturer gives you pressure recommendation based on the load your vehicle will put on the tire. Max pressure as recommended by Ford would be the pressure you use when your vehicle is loaded to itself maximum weight. When traveling empty or lightly loaded, you would use even less. You will find the ride much more comfortable.

Sometimes you eat the bear, sometimes the bear eats you.
Use this calculator to find the correct pressure when you change tire size.

Thanks, On the door jam sticker it says front 30psi and rear 35psi. So I need to take some air out, no doubt. (y)

On one of the videos I just viewed regarding the torsion bar adjustment for height, it says if you make this adjustment, you would then need a wheel alignment, is this correct? I just had a wheel alignment last week, so I'm thinking not to do the torsion bar adjustment. Your thoughts on a wheel alignment if you make this adjustment.

When I bought the (5) Coopers for TRS-2 I got them through Amazon with free shipping and x-months of no interest.

So now what do I do about the slight rubbing on the front tire when turning the wheel all the way? Not turn it all the way? Or put in a Lift kit? 🤪😂🤪
It would probably look reel sweet with a lift kit, no doubt. But I just don't have the funds right now. Probably run me $2k at least

I agree. Find out where they rub and under what conditions. 31-10.50 shouldn't be rubbing very much on that truck. If they're rubbing on the radius arms, a lift kit won't fix that. If they're rubbing up in the wheel wells, then a lift may help. Adding a 1" spacer under the spring seats will probably be enough lift. But will require an alignment and new camber bushings to give more adjustability.

Ughhhh. I'll deal with the very randomn rub for now. I just got it aligned last week. I'm not going for another wheel alignment for awhile.

It's hitting the bumper.
Looking at your pictures, it looks like the bumper is back too far. The curve of the bumper doesn't match up with the curve of the fender. First thing I would try would be to loosen the bumper mounting bolts, pull it all the way forward, keep it lined up straight and tighten the bolts. Will probably take 2 people to do it.

If that doesn't help, then the spring spacers I mentioned would be a good fix. If you do them and then the back is too low, just get longer shackles for the rear leaf springs. You only need another inch or 2. 1" spacer under the coils in the front will provide more than 1" of lift because of the leverage of the axle beam.

Good idea, I'll see what I can do.
