to keep people who don't have common sense or patience from killing themselves and trying to blame ford.

probably some type of regulation concerning vehicle type and maximum speed.

i heard it was because my truck is flex fuel but i don't buy that. lol i don't mind not being able to got 100 it would eat gas if i did that. i usaully keep it under 70 less wear and tear on the truck plus i get better mpg. most of my driving is in town so i average a speed of 30mph my speed demon days are over i had my fun now time to relax u could say

----------

oh yeah and i'm 19 years old...lol

A lot of times the governed speed has to do with the OEM tires put on it by the plant.
Not sure what came on your truck new.
Just a thought...
