Running 31" Goodyear Wrangler's on my CJ-7. Planning a trip to the coast this weekend, entirely back roads, 180 miles each way. I've read recommendations from 30/30 front/rear to 26/24. Any Jeepers out there?

By back roads, that still means paved? Then the max pressure marked on the tire is fine and will result in the best gas mileage.

What does the vehicle placard say for tire size and pressure? What is the tire size on there now ? (yes, I know 31", but is it 31X10.50R15 or what?

original placard was for H78-15 bias tires and reads 24/24 front/rear. Current tires are 31X10.50R15, soft top, 2" lift, full size spare mounted on aftermarket rear bumper with aluminum wheels all the way around, gas tank is 15 gallon and the ashtray has $.38 in pennies.

Good question, all the one's I'll be on are paved. At 13 MPG I'm not driving this thing for the mileage. Idea is to protect my spine with a compliant ride and not having the TP so low it goes Firestone Wilderness/Ford Explorer on me.
