Odd tire wear-

I've noticed I'm getting very excessive tire wear on just the outer most side of the passenger side tire. Took the truck in to get it aligned and they said its right on the money. Truck dosnt pull and I'm not running nascar races with it. Any suggestions?

I'm seeing the same thing, and was also told alignment is perfect. Checked ball joints, tie rod ends, drag link, and track arm and don't see any issues. Also, keep my tire air pressure on the higher side (around 70 psi in the front) to encourage tread wear along the center. I've got the typical Toyo MT right-hand wander, but no pulling.

Have you checked out all the ball joints tie rods and alignment yourself or just taking the shops opinion. I had the shops get the alignment wrong plenty of times I just do it myself

No I haven't checked it myself. I got a feeling that is the next step.

You got me on the rotating. I haven't. Ive got 12k on the tires so that's a need to do. I don't think in 35 years of driving I have ever rotated tires now that I think of it...
