Whats your average speed in 4th gear or when does the shift light come on?

This may be a weird question but what i am trying to figure out is on a 1999 6 cyl TJ at what speed does the shift light come on when in 4th gear.
or whats your average speed in 4th gear?

I cant drive the jeep anymore to find out and my other jeep is far from being able to tell me.


if your woundering im trying to figure out approximently how fast i was going before i wrecked, was in 4th gear when skidded about 40 feet then crashed on the freeway into another wrecked truck. Its a stock jeep with 3.73 gears and 30" tires.

If you don't remember how it happened, I'd say about 88 MPH.

The light is computer controlled and varies on things like throttle position and engine load. If your cruising steady at 45 it will prolly be on, or if your accelerating it may not come on until higher speed . If you hadn't been texting you might have seen it come on.
