    Getting a little tired of the bouncing on the TSL flatspots that happen while the truck is sitting. Sure it gets better after 20 minutes of driving, but that is all the way to the trails. Anybody have a recommendation to reduce it? Maybe run a higher air pressure on the street?... Putting the truck on jackstands after use sure solves it, but thats a pain.
    Thanks,
    Jeff

    jackstands is the only cure I know. Its just a characteristic of bias tires. Different street tires? I'm going to keep my 32s for street and daily driving and 38 TSLs for trail riding.

    I found that parking in the yard seemed to help prevent the flat spots. Maybe the soft ground?
