I want to say 2000 but I'll try to remember to check next time I'm on a freeway.

Yes I'm looking for for a specific request. Odd it may sound! Curious because back in stock form I did not record that. Now with 37's and 4:88's I'm rolling on flat in 6th gear at 2400 rpm. Exactly what I was after. Next time your thinking about it if you can narrow that number down I'd be grateful as a comparison. That's the one fact I did not record as Blu bi kong grew!

Pretty sure its 2200 rpm. Usually average 20-21 mpg at this speed.

You got it! My commute is 4 mi w/ No freeway but next time I'm making a run somewhere farther I'll keep an eye out.

So the 4.88's are treating you well with 37's and your 6 spd?

Good to hear. :like:

How do you like your 6 Pak shocks?

If you mind what is the true height of your tires?

Thank you, Had to program mine at 35 to achieve correct speed reading so I think I would be slightly higher RPM if I regeared. Hmmmm
