    25-30 psi on all four corners depending on how dry the course is, if you have 3.55s and a zf, start in 2nd in 4 low, or 3rd if you have 4.10s. Slip the clutch at least 50 feet out to avoid the rear hopping, and if it still hops lower the tire pressure more. Make sure the rear tank is full and the front tank is empty. It will help keep more weight over the rear axle, and with the front tank empty the weight will be pretty close to even on both driver and passenger side tires which will keep you going straight

    Good luck!

    Nope. 94.5 was start of the powerstroke. Manual only for that year. 95 you could get the E4OD with it.
