    Hey, I was jus wondering what RPMs everybody with a manual typically shifts at. I usually go sometime between 2400 and 2500 but was just curious what others do.

    3500 getting on freeway, 2500 just normal driving

    I normally just go by sound though because my last truck (1991 GMC Sonoma) did not have a tac.

    Depends on what I am doing. If I am driving to save gas then about 2400-2600, if I am going to haul ass I may not shift until about 4500 or so.
