I always thought it was 40 mph??? Fastest I've had my F-150 in 4x4, is like 35 mph....

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!

I've left my 4H engaged going down the high way many times going 55-60 and had no problems.

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.
