upshift rpm, yer 6 spd guys

what rpm do you usually upshift at driving around town?
what rpm do you usually cruise at driving around freeway?
do you take off with 1st gear (not granny 1st, the 1st on the shifter), or do you take off with 2nd? (2nd on the shifter)

i shift around 1.6k and the moment i shift out of 1st, i am almost done with 2nd... lol

Depends on my mood. 80% of the time I start in 2nd and shift in between 2000-2500. I also don't use the clutch 90% of the time(don't know if it is relevant).

I have a 99 F250 with a 6spd I shift between 2200-2400. my turbo seems to spool up around 1800 but I have a straight pipe going into 5in stacks. this helped my spool up by about 200/300 rpm's. cruising rpm before the 38's was 2100@70mph with 3.73 gears.What gear are you running?
