Great article... I especially like the picture of the Ford Ranger being driven on two tires inflated to 100 PSI.

I've been at 50psi for like 3-4 days. No problems so far.

Since April 10. No problems
 
Since April 10. No problems here either unless you think that 3-5 extra mpg is a problem. That is mostly due to LRR tires, not just increasing pressure.

I'll make sure my future
 
I'll make sure my future tires are LRR too. I'm thinking my next tire will be 195/65/15.

You think I should put mine to 55psi or take it up to 60?

Your kumhos are max at 35
 
Your kumhos are max at 35 right? I had my kumhos at 50 with no problems. I will make no recommendations however. You need to decide for yourself.

I put my Goodyear Assurance Comfortread P185 70 14's at 60 psi a couple of weeks ago and have no problems.

Edit: Max pressure is rated at 44psi.
