Tire pressure....

I am asking a qurestion that i'm sure has been covered before. I am having front tire wear problems. Alignment is good, no worn or damaged parts...So what tire pressure should I be running? I know its a big heavy truck, and 4 wheel drives are known for ffont tire wear but this is worse than normal...
Any suggestions?

The wear is on the outer edges inside & outside. I am currently rinning 50 psi in the front and 50 in the rear. I work this truck as well as part time daily driver...

That type of wear is consistant with underinflated tires.

When I got the tires installed they only put 40 all the way around..... I got home and thought ...they look low so I bumped them up to 50....Guess I will go on up with the fronts to see if I can get more wear on the center...
