Superchips tuner or a sct tuner will be able to remove.

Dealership will laugh at you if you ask them.

also, it will likely run out of rpms pretty quick past the limiter depending on your rear end gearing.

My 2003 4.0 liter tops out at 140 km per hour - that translates to about about 87 mph.

It's a truck, don't usually have to go that fast, and when I do, the limiter tells me that I'm pushing "goodbye licence" time.

You can get a chip and re-program the limiter I believe - there is information out there on all kinds of Ranger forums.

Skip on the chip and get a tuner.
there is a diference. Chips don't provide anything

I got lucky on mine. My top speed is 118 mph which translates to roughly about 178 KPM's. I've only had it that high twice since I got it new 7 years ago. 70 MPH is fast enough for me. But I wouldn't ask the dealer for any performance chips or to remove it. They'll laugh you out of the parking lot. Then they'll try to pan a couple of useless performance chips that really don't do anything. An aftermarket tuner like super chips, or sct would be your best bet really.
