What RPM to shift?

What RPM do you guys upshift normally on the M5OD? I normally shift mine at 3000 rpm, I find the shifting on the truck notchy. 2009 Ranger Sport 4.0L/M5OD

Somewhere in that ballpark.

The shifting is actually pretty good IMO.

I have a B4000 2009 and i find that 3000 - 3250 is very smooth shifting. Below that second gear is hard. s for the rest they are all very slick.

Interesting. I never really thought about it before I saw this thread. I also never had a vehicle with a tachometer. I checked this evening, and it looks like I like to shift around 2700 rpm. I've got a 4.10 L/S diff, though, so that makes all my gears shorter.

I wish for highway driving, Ford had seen fit to provide a 6-speed, like Toyota/Nissan/Jeep. I guess they're in the antique business with the Ranger/B-series, though.

If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.
