Just wondering what RPM should the motor be running at when the truck is traveling 60 MPH? I know the truck is a 5 spd. auto, but it just seems like the truck is in desparate need of another gear on the highway. I think at around 60 or 70 it's running 2000-2100 RPM's, could it cause damage driving faster than that??
