I own a 89 YJ stock. It has been suggested to run 32 lbs of pressure. Is this what most run?

All YJ's won't be the same. Yours might be different due to weight, tire, mods, etc. Do a chalk way to figure out the optimum PSI for your tires. There are two versions:

For the first, you simply draw a straight line across your tires, then drive on em and see how the line itself wears. You can use chalk, grease pencil, crayon, etc...just make sure it's a dry day.

Here's a link:

For the second, you need some sidewalk chalk and a flat asphalt parking lot or driveway.
