I regularly run my truck down to 20 MPH (650 RPM) in fifth gear, and even accelerate from that speed. No engine problems so far, but I only have 86,000 miles on it.

Although I have to replace the kill switch again this weekend. The shaking of the shift lever destroys the kill switch.
The vacuum gauge plus wheel covers helped increase summer 2015 mileage to 38.5 MPG, while summer 2016 mileage was 38.6 MPG without the wheel covers. Drove 33,021 miles 2016-2018 at 35.00 MPG.
