Maximum Speed of Your Ranger

What is the maximum speed of your ranger?

The other day I had some open road and found out the top speed of my ranger I had my SCT on the lowest setting 87 octane and got to 118 mph I'm guess on 91 octane I can get to ~120 -124. I was on my stock wheels and tires 31x10.5.

Disclaimer, I am not suggesting any one to try this. Top speed should be done at a track.
