You'd have to have the HF35 axle and 33" tall tires to get 55 MPH at 2000 RPM.

You can check it by punching in the numbers on the Speedometer Calculator I posted last week.
Funny you bring that up. I run at almost exactly 2000 RPM at 55mph in 5th gear, running 205 70R14 tires. HF35 with the 4 cylinder. I have driven a couple v6 trucks and they're geared a lot lower.

Interesting.

So, something isn't quite right with that speedometer calculator tool.

I only had 2 points of reference to compare the data with - my HG46 axle and a screenshot Deerhurst provided once with his HG41 axle.

I'm about 2000RPM at 55MPH. 4.11 gears on 31s. I'm barely 2MPH different (closer to GPS than stock) then 235/75/15.
