Wow i am surprised that ain't lowered more. After all you are doing 100mph in that beast. I like it but if i wanted to go fast i would buy a mustang or something like that. Don't get me wrong if i could do 100mph safe in my truck i would try it. I have to give you credit that you didn't put a stupid wing on that back of that ranger.

100mph in that truck drives like 40mph in your truck. I have personally been in it at 120mph and did not even question the stability of the truck at that speed.

I guess the wide/low profile tires tend to help alot? I have done 90mph in my old ranger on 31x10.5/15's with those hood visor things that lund makes. That was scary cause you could turn the wheel and not hear the tires chirping on the road.

Not to glote.. But the speedo reads 120. I was clocked and ( unfortunatly ) cited for 139 in a 35. Won the full package : Reckless endangerment, Speeding, Street Racing and the lowest and stupidest charge I have ever seen.. ' Defacing city pavement '. They hit me with everything they could.

I've decided I don't like walking much anymore so.. I set my limiter to 100mph at the present time. The limiter turns off with the flip of a switch, but for daily driving.. I keep myself in check.

Why be trendy? Theres NOTHING like jumping a sportscar in a truck. Especially if they have their friends with them :)

I found out the speed limiter in my truck is at 90, which I was very disappointed to hit, I thought it would hold out till 99 or 100...
