Thanks again for the TPMS info!

Oh so you had 5th wheel rails installed. I wants to avoid that so I can have the flat is the bed to use when hauling plywood and lumber

got my plans changed. was going to use the B&W Companion with the installed goosneck hitch. the Rockwood comes with the Reese Revolution (sidewinder) and the B&W companion hitch that attaches to the goose-neck receptacle can not be used with the Revolution so i was forced to decide did i want to have to install rails and use the B&W Patriot with the Reese king Box orrrrr. I really liked the clearance and convenience of not having to set and release a slide and knowing me i would put the cab into the cap one day. give a little and get a little o i can still use the goose-neck trailer i just remove the top part of the 5th wheel hitch and hook up i do not have to take the whole thing out.

Had the truck in the dealer for warranty issues and asked them to lower the TPMS settings to 50psi and the tires to 55psi. WOW what a difference!!!!

Thanks for the info!

yahoooo different truck now. i went to the tire mfg web site and downloaded the chart for the psi =lbs load rating and have that for my reference. i run the lowest (with in reason) pressure that i can because of the heat build up when running on hot pavement.

Yes much better ride. Just to verify, you running the Firestone Transforce AT tire correct? If so could you share that tire chart, I am not finding it on Firestones website. Probably not looking in the right place.

Thanks!!
