be glad it does. A truck like a Ranger is not meant for speed UNLESS it is at a certified race track and the ranger has all the safety devices.
Besides, tires on a Ranger are not for high speeds over 100

My 94 4.0 dont have any,and about the speed governor on it,doesnt have that either since i found it would run till i ran outta road
I had the pointer on the speedo laid all the way back to overdrive and still had more left.I believe i was running 123-125 since thats what my gps showed.The little ranger will get up and run,it just takes it a while to get there.
