Yes you could put a little more pressure on the weight bars to get more weight to the front but it is not critical unless you are experiencing handling problems.


I agree. I know the '14 trucks were a good bit heavier but my '18 only has a 3450 FAWR so it's not like 3500 lb is ridiculously light. Less FALR also reduces problems with oversteer in an emergency avoidance maneuver which is the reason Ford only recommends 25% on the newer trucks.
