When I first got my 2000 Sport it had 33x9.5 BFG's and 3:55 axle gearing (T/C gear was correct for the speedometer).
While learning the limits of its capability I found that the load being applied to the drivetrain differed at what speed the limiter would restrict the speed.
If I was driving on a flat or down hill grade (no wind factor) I could achieve 95 mph and never encountered the limiter.
Coming back from one trip I was encountering 30+ mph head winds and the limiter kicked in between 80 and 85 mph.
As I said, I was testing what it could do. Now it never goes above 60 mph and its doing well... IMO
