Don't shift into 4H if your tires are spinning (ice, rain, mud) or you are above 45MPH, otherwise you can go up to highway speeds once you have 4H engaged.

On a perfectly flat level surface, you could probably do the top speed of the truck... just don't turn.

You can go as fast as you want. Tell the owner of a new Raptor to stay under 50.....Then duck!

My four wheeling out here in the desert is in the hills and 4 Low. Nuts and bolts wise, the gear box don't care what speed you drive, if you are on the road and going 65 or 70 and need 4 wheel, well maybe, just maybe you need to rethink things.
