Glad to see that we can all take a joke here... sometimes ppl get all bent out of shape! Yea I try to do the same thing now, but I hate it when a minivan packed with 7 kids blows by me!! and i also get bummed that she slows down to 50 in 3rd gear. Its not like i'm towing anything

Apparently I haven't commented on this issue yet.
I'd clean the throttle body and double check the tire pressure.
Without a doubt the even slightly larger tires will play a role.
The computer on these KK's is far from perfect, and it seems to love to be in 3rd gear rather than 4th when around 45 with a slight incline. I've learned to just go with the flow when the rpms go over 2K. Just keep the rpms steady when they do jump up especially if you know by now that on a certain hill it won't stay in 4th.

No hills out here,just big a** mountains.You have no chance staying in 4th,let alone 3rd in most cases going up some of the passes here that crest at 11,000+ feet.
