80 is good for me too, did 80 the other day no top on just fine but my 2.5 won't let me go any faster. Was going 65 down a dirty road yesterday and felt pretty stable.

I love this. When someone sets an alarm , I make a big deal to my son about reaching in the open door area and blowing the horn twice. "Got the alarm set so nobody will steal our dirt". The rich folks are so put out. Top is off, half doors missing, Don't forget to lock it up...

When the only time you can pass a car is on a dirt road.

I'm so gonna do that every time I get out after I push an imaginary button on my key. Incidentally, I'm referring to the key that's not necessary since my ignition turns without it. ,

you know you drive a YJ...when you start looking at 18 wheelers as an opportunity to draft (especially with the 2.5L!)
