Speed is a question of money, how fast do you want to go?

I have seen my speedo burried. But yeah, the only way to get rid of the limiter is to chip it, or for OBDII trucks, a programmer.

Remove half the bolts form your truck and you will feel what it is like to drive a ranger past the govenor limit.

Cutting out the governor is easy but it's there for a reason your driving a truck not a race car....

I know this post is old. You make a sound point. It is a truck not a car or race car. My 2001 Ranger has new shocks and is at factory height. I made it to the limiter 90MPH. It was running smooth. Had it there for a while. It was smooth and not scary. Now bumpy side streets are crazy. To that point.
