Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.
if you are going to use a "recommended" amount of air, then go by the sticker on the inside of your drivers door frame. it should recommend about 32 psi on your stock tires. i run mine at 28 psi. however, as stated previously, the "best" way to find the correct tire pressure for your tires mounted on your rig you will need to preform the chalk test.
on my MTR's it says that the max load is 3305 lbs at 65 psi, and that's per tire. you have to remember that each tire is only carrying about 1/4 the weight of the jeep. now, that's not exact, as some tires carry slightly more weight than other tires (think engine), but its pretty close. so assume about 1/4 of the weight of your jeep on each tire. lets also assume that your jeep weighs about 4000 lbs, which is slightly on the heavy side for a jeep. given these assumptions, then your tires are only supporting ~1000 lbs each. with this kind of load, you are in no way near the max load capacity for those tires. so, correspondingly, the psi of the tire should be nowhere near the max load capacity.
also, the MTR's are a load range D tire, meaning they have stiffer sidewalls than a load range C tire. that means they are going to ride rougher than a lower load range tire would at the same psi. that means you should probably run them at a slightly lower psi than you would a load range C tire in order to get the same ride quality.
I was alway told that to check if your shocks are bad, put your hands on the hood and bounce the front end several times, then let go. It it keeps bouncing several times, shocks are shot. If it stops as soon as you let go or after a bounce they're still doing their job. Could be a myth, I don't know. Makes sense to me though.

If you want to keep your jeep at stock height I have a solution that worked very well for me
My jeep had a bad case of sagitus after my winch install so after looking at Moogs coil spring chart I settled on
the CC780 from Amazon for $72.
They work great, lifted the front 1" back to level and they ride better than the stock setup. These springs have a longer free length plus a higher spring rate. Give them a look
