102

Long story short.....Found out that the factory limits the 2500 to 102mph top speed.

How did I find out????? Caught a trespasser on ranch who I think was checking it out for possible diesel or equipment theft in the future..I ended up giving chase, got a license number, hopefully the sheriff will have a little talk with.

Questions are for "after the shot" and God's the one whom does the asking.

The question I seek an answer for is simply; why, or why not?

Or a bed mount .50 cal with remote control.

Probably a meth head. Good luck.

Thing is it didn't feel like 102 at all for a truck. Didn't realize how fast I was until I got close enough to read the plate and i looked at the speedo. Most vehicles don't feel as controlled and stable as the Ram at that speed. The fastest I have ever driven is 147 when I had a Trans Am and at 147 it was really light.
