Bear in mind that I was doing this in rush hour traffic (I know, don't anybody lecture me) so redline speed in 4th just wasn't possible, but I think it's at least 100mph. Also, I am running 235-40-18's. Lastly, the RPM readings are my eyeball estimate and not exact given our tachs.
RPM @ 55mph= 3100-3200 in 4th and 2600 in 5th
@ 65mph= 3800-3900 in 4th and 3100 in 5th
@ 75mph= 4600 in 4th and 3600 in 5th
Redline 1st=30mph
4th=I ain't incriminating myself
