so the whole deal with it being able to go up to 100 mph in 4WD is true. because ive seen a video of a guy putting in off road mode then 4 hi then locking the differential. he then goes like 120 in 4WD. just didnt want to hurt anything driving that fast in 4WD.

Dude who went 120 probably had a tune which removed the speed governor.

I can't remember the exact speed, but I think the rear diff lock dissengages at about 25 mph in off-road mode. 4WD is good through the entire speed range. I was told the factory governor is set to 114 mph. I can't confirm though.

Factory governor is set at 99mph. Any speeds over that requires a tune that deletes the factory limit.
