Greetings and welcome! I have a automatic in my van. I have had it since 2008.
60kph is about the maximum SAFE operating sped on a free way here in Cebu, and they just lowered that to 45 due to accidents.
Carry trucks are work vehicles, not speedsters.
Is your 4x4 full time, or can U disengage it?
Do U have knobby tires, or is it standard?
Tires here unless new tend to blowout and at high speed cause a rollover.
Speed comes with a BMW, not Carry.
Remember, truck gearing is about getting started with a heavy load, not speed.
The first 3 are for getting up to 45 or so, the 4th is like overdrive when on freeway.
Input from truck drivers in US will be good to explain about truck operation as I have been here 10+ years and have forgotten a lot about trucks.
