I've never tested the limiter speed but I thought it was set at 95 mph. From the above posts though, I could be wrong...

Honestly, if you need to go 90 to pass somebody, that's pretty pethetic. I have used that excuse before, though, lol. The Chevy tops out at 97 MPH going downhill with still another 3000 RPMs to go. Legally, you aren't even supposed to go over the maximum speed limit to overtake another vehicle, FYI which is why there is a separate truck speed limit to make it easier for you to pass big rigs.

I never have hit the top speed in the Ranger. I did hit the top revs though, which is why it's torn apart sitting in the garage, lol.

Got me an actual picture of my speedo at the exact cut off point, my GPS told me I was going 86, but looks like 89 on the speedo.
Weird the truck doesn't even feel like you are driving fast at all at this speed.
I was just barely over the flow of traffic,
and still getting "passed" by regular old sedans . I don't really "need" to go faster than this ever with this truck but would like to find out if there is a way to remove this.

Which one for our trucks? There are so many different brand, types. Also don't want to change factory motor functions as to mess with emissions or warranty.

i dont get why you wanna go that fast in a ranger. the front ends start to float at 80 mph.

If you wanna go fast buy a car built for it not a truck

btw my camaro doesnt shut down at all it just keeps hauling ass till i run out of road. 124 mph is the time i started to slow down
