RPMs @ 60mph (Post your motor/trans/gears/tire size)

Let's get a little information on what RPMs you are turning at 60mph (only). Post your motor size (4cyl/3.0/4.0), your transmission (auto/manual), your gear ratio (3.73/4.10/4.56/etc) and your tire size (31x10.50x15/33x12.50x15/etc).

If you are posting with larger tires please make sure you've adjusted for the speedometer!

To get a more accurate reading have the truck on cruise control doing 60mph for a few seconds, so it "settles" in, and make sure you're not on too steep of grade.

completely stock 2002 edge 2wd 3.0 auto
I'm at about 2,050 RPMS at 60mph with actually a slight head wind. I believe I have the 4.10's...but I'm not 100% positive.

Tires are 235/75/R15 or whatever stock edge is...i really have no idea..and i'm too lazy to look outside (i park really far away HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION)

small rant:
they don't allow pickups so I have to park way way way the heck out in the boonies (about 1/2 mile) out of my place...SUX major

he lives in some type of community/development with an association. there's an association fee and it covers whatver, trash removal, snow removal, etc...the kicker is they'll get on your *** about stuff like parking on the street (sometimes not allowed), parking in your driveway, trucks, the color paint on the door! some of them are pretty rediculous...wait...explain it somewhere else :p haha back to 60mph & RMPs!

It's the gheyest thing i've ever seen/heard/of.

They try to tow your truck when you park it. You can't park on the swale, etc. But I love it...we are on a golf course w/ a bunch of complaining old people and the most expensive house is 175k...our neighbor. It's the stupidest thing. But my neighbor has an excursion (which is also very loud) and they don't do **** to him. them. I hate them. I had it out with them SO MANY TIMES....my whole family has trucks...a 03 silverado, 2000 f150 and my truck. And they mess with all of us. They said the only place we can park a truck is in our driveway or garage. Well garage is filled up with woodworking tools/junk/stock truck parts and the driveway is filled by my moms silverado so she doesn't have to walk and it's otherwise left open to clean/wash trucks and do my mods. I usually am up on jackstands or outside cursing my anus off working on audio, etc. (i'm getting into competing a little bit...trying to get sponsored)
End of my rant...they suck!!!

I just got home from work and had to walk at least 3/8 of a mile...and it's muggy out...sux...i hate em

My neighborhood doesn't allow trucks, but they mean BIG trucks. Still, I'm the only guy with a pickup truck.

Oh, and you need to move, but do a yard job in the HOA chairman's lawn first!
