ever 6,000 is about what i do... if you notice uneven wear check them for balancing, air pressure or truck out of alignment

cross the fronts to the rear and bring the rears straight forward.

this may start a conflict but i'd run 30 psi in all 4

regular cabs are to light to run anything more then 30 psi zach, but you already know that lol.

my truck has stickers all over it saying to run 30 in the front 35 in the rear, the only time i ran 35 in the rear was when i towed my mustang over to the new house.

When I bought my BFG A/Ts the guy at Discount Tire said to run them at 40psi on the road. I know what it says in the door jamb but what do you guys recommend. The ride is fine with them at 40psi. I just want thrm to last as long as posible.

I do something to make it easy on my to remember, since I change the oil every 3000 miles like most people, I rotate the tires every other time and I am good to go, I have never had a problem on any of my cars/trucks doing it this way.

at 40 psi you will not get all the tread on the road and more then likley the center will wear out faster then the edges.

Rotate them every other oil change, assuming you change the oil at 3,000 miles. I have GoodYear Wranglers and I run with 35 lbs up front and 32 lbs in the year. It gives me the best feel of handling and comfort, both on-road and off-road. I never air-down with this pressure, altough I'm not a hard-core wheeler like some others here, however I've never been stuck either.
