I have a 2.3 auto with 31s and 3:73 and I run 70 at about 2900. That's all the truck will do I'm lucky if it will go 75. Is that right? Does anyone else have a 4cyl auto that goes any faster?

Mostlikely 3:73 or 4:10. I wish I could do atleast 85 and when I'm on the highway at 70 my truck drinks gas like its nothing.
