Default New to the forum and have a quick question?

Hey guys just got another goat, it's a 2002 RAM sport 4x4 with the 4.7. I had a 99 back in high school and I have missed it. The truck has 9in lift and 37's on it right now. I dont know what gears it has in it. Im guessing 4.10's because it's pulling them pretty good, alot better then my 99 did with the 5.9 and 33's with stock 3.55 gears. My question is what rpm should I be turning at 70 mph with the 37's??? and how bad do you think the speed odo is off?? THANKS

No idea what kind of RPM's you should be turning without knowing the gear ratio. The easiest way to see how far off the speedo is would be to get a GPS and check the speed it's displaying against what the speedo is showing.

Yeah I guess I will just get my wife to ride up beside me in her car and see how bad its off. I know my 33's made my 99 off by 5mph, but I have no clue on this truck. I had a chevy 2500 with 4.10's and it would turn 2,400 rpm with 265's at 70mph. This truck is only turning 2,000 at what I'm guessing at is 70mph. I'm planning on putting 4.56's in it in a couple months. Just was wondering if any of you guys had the similar setup on your truck??
