What's everyone running for pressure after having this TSB done for steering?
Had mine done, and running about 39-40 now, after having it as low as 30 but it kept triggering the pressure light on relatively cooler or rainy weather and got tired seeing that light.
This was before the fix.
Can't say the steering is much better, but maybe the tire pressure being lower could help?

Dealers love 40psi in the tires for some reason. You can go to 35 with stock TPMS and not trigger a TPMS light. Time was you could go pretty low as long as there wasn't a HUGE difference in tire pressure between tires, not on the JL.

39 was @ 25 before the fix.

Out of curiosity, is that cold or after riding for a few miles and getting some heat in them? Stock BFG KO2s?

Yes, stock and cold. Hot they read 39. I like this pressure on the interstate for mileage.
I noticed better mileage when I first put them on and they were aired up around 37. It's started to get colder overnight, so the pressure dropped a bit, and then I went wheeling this weekend so we had aired down to 15 psi. I got them back up to around 32-33 and the computer still is indicating good mileage, but it definitely feels like they need more air. Gonna try running them back at 37. Thanks!

I put 35 on my way back from Colorado and averaged 2 mpg less. Not scientific, but enough for me. Happy testing! :)
