Top speed.

I was just wondering what the fastest you guys have ever got these trucks up to. I know the speedo stops at 90 but what do you think these trucks top out at? Me I have never even got the needle to 90 mabey 85 passing.

Switched to the dark side, not turning back for awhile, if ever.

Have sent the needle past the end many times, once trying to catch my girlfriends Mustang, never did catch her, but was gaining and she later said she was at 105.

I'd say about 105 or 110 is the limit without gearing changes. By 100 you're almost up to yellow. Idk how fast I was going (iphone gps and no service) but had it floored in 5th for about 3 miles across flat land.... felt like my truck was about to fall apart on me

Depends on the rear end gears. In my '95 with a ZF5 and 3.55 gears, at 3500 RPM, it'll do 135. Screaming, but she'll scoot.

I've seen a video on youtube of a bone stock 7.3 OBS doing like 120 or 130. It was pretty cool. I dont remember if it was gps verified or by another car or what.
