So my current pressures I'm 60 front 40 in the rear. So using your tables I would be 50 in the front and 30 in the rear. MPG??? 

 

Just for fun, I'll try your table and pressures.

I have done similar low pressures and liked the ride...  With stiffer sidewalls i got away with it.

35 is the min I would run for non-winter paved road speeds. 

 

I run 55-65 in my fronts. At 55 they ride great but on winding roads with constant turning they are a little soft for cornering with a 5200lb front axle at 55 mph. At 3300lbs on my rear axle 35 is overkill, but that's the lowest I'll run for street use. For back roads I run 45/25 and the traction is awesome! But it's not enough air for paved road speeds. 

 

My 19.5's are a different story as 70 psi is the min I can run them. That's below the min pressure on the tables but approved by Toyo. I run 70/70 empty and 80/table for loaded. The most I generally ever need is 95 psi, but I have needed 110 once. 

 

Table pressures are what's required to carry the specific load. More pressure may increase stability, but much more than 10 psi too much can decrease traction, tire wear, and increase susceptibility to road hazards.

Just got mine back from the shop whole new front end and some upgrades(heavy duty ball joints, oversived sway bar end links, and track bar) I also ended up with Billstein 4600's cheaper than Rancho and recommended above the similar price Monroe gas shock.

So far I can say is this truck handles better than it ever has and I can honestly say I don't know if any one thing made a vast improvement but all together the steering is tight enough and responsive enough that it'll take a bit of getting used to....  and btw it's nice to actually feel the suspension doing it's job versus having to keep your mouth open so you don't chip a tooth when you hit these sink holes and or missing patches of road
