Plus the added bonus of they look sweet!
I managed to get my 4 Banger on 4.10s and 33s up to 91 before it started losing power again, mostly because of an incline. I was still going 75 by the time I hit the top. That high speed stretch was on flat land too, no tail winds that I could feel either. I was never able to do it again for some reason though.

Many a time I passed through Palm Springs going westbound. It got so bad one time that I had to pull over, and when I did, my Jeep started rolling backward on a slight decline. I spent 45 minutes waiting for a semi to come along to draft off of, a flatbed came along so I took it. Drafted off him all the way into Fontana before I was able to hold my own.

Still not enough power.

My hood used to bounce until I replaced the rubber feet that cushion the hood to the fenders.
I had my ZJ up to 182KMH as per my GPS, which is about 113mph and my YJ up to 85mph. Felt like it could've gone further but I was too scared to push it any more!
