    I just realized radar confirmation is a moot point

    Is a GPS not accurate enough to confirm?

    On my truck with 4.88s and 34.5 tires my truck thinks I'm going 65 but a radar would show 70ish. I'm not certain but I think I recall the limiter being based off of RPM and gear selected (2900rpm 6th gear AT) so basically the speed you will be limited to will be the speed that you achieve with your tire size and your gear ratio when you hit 2900rpm in 6th in an auto and that speed displayed on the dash will be different than actual speed measured by radar.

    Since no one has any empirical evidence to support speedo limitations either from gears or OVtune, it's nothing more than a rumor. A rumor that is unsubstantiated.

    I'm not sure why we are spending so much time talking about.

    The hearsay doesn't provide any added value at the moment especially for those looking to upgrade gears.

    That’s not a question I’ve asked. Even if it is true why would you ever want to go faster than 85mph on a pick up is beyond me. For what it’s worth I do have 5.29s but no ovtune and no problems so far. Never found any limitations but than again I don’t really think I’d want to go that fast with all the gear I have.

    Nice, I literally just did the same today. Drove 14 hours from norcal straight to JT diffs. If all goes well I should be breaking it in on my drive back home in 2 days.

    Meee, so much nicer on rockclimbs and hils, very little effort is needed to bump up onto boulders, when before even in low it took some throttle. And 4hi can actually be used again. Before 4hi on any decent hill just wouldnt happen, the truck would bog so bad.

    Thanks for the response! Definitely 4hi is not useable for any incline as it is lol

    I might make the switch and add a front locker while I'm at it

    SCS Stealth 6: 17x8.5 w/ 285/70 Wrangler Ultraterrain ATs; "Dealer Package" Pro-Comp 3-n-1 spacer/block lift; Mobtown bolt-on Sliders; Rear Diff Breather Mod; KC C2 flood lights on Cali Raised tailgate brackets
    Looked into having ECGS provide and install Nitro 5.29's, but was advised both Nitro and ECGS are out of the 5.29 kits...and no real definitive ETA for them being restocked. The pricing seems reasonable, not to mention I'm located between Richmond and Virginia Beach, so ECGS in Raleigh, NC isn't that far of a trip, coupled with their reputation and warranty, it almost is a no-brainer to use them both for purchasing and installing the 5.29 package.

    I guess I'm kind of like @inksin as I am not built up entirely for 5.29's (but running stock 3.90 on my '17 TRD OR DCSB automatic), but between currently running 33's, @Mobtown Offroad bolt-on sliders (future full skids in the works) and hauling a 6'4"x10' trailer typically with loaded with wood (for our woodstove, as well as trash/recycle runs to the local dump), the 5.29 seemed like the better option compared to 4.88s...granted most of my trailer hauling involves interstate driving with speed limits ranging from 65-70mph and typical round trip is about 70 miles (depending on where the tree guy's jobs are located).

    Any insight, input, etc. is always welcomed!
