Pulls real nice in 5th with 4.10's. You can actually be in 5th at like 45 and get up to highway speeds without downshifting. And don't worry about losing top end, that's actually kind of a myth, and the little bit of truth it does have to it won't come into play unless you plan on getting over the 180mph barrier.

Here's a gear calculator so you can know what rpm's you'll be at at any given speed. PaladinMicro

2001 GT Convertible
/1967 Coupe
All the usual bolt-on's /200 I6, C4

And a few Explorers too... 2008 4.0 XLT 4x2, 1996 XLT 5.0 4x2, 2003 Sport Trac XLT 4.0 4x4
