I'm sure. The ZJ is surprisingly good at high speeds, even with my aggressive alignment and such. Last weekend, I was driving somewhere with a group of friends, so I'm just following them down the highway. We had a nice tailwind, so not too much wind noise. I figured I was doing 70 - 75, then after a minute or so I realized it sounded like the motor was spinning too fast for that. Looked down and realized I was cruising at 95 o.O

Good decision.

No need to put your "mommy" hat on and start lecturing cuz you didn't like some wise crack on the internet.

Let's Jus stay on topic.

OT: nothing yet.....but looks like rain today

It's an iron D44 from my old XJ, 4:56/locker and TSM discs. Had a set of Frobot Fab (AgitatedPancake) brackets welded on to bolt it in.

Ordered an Artec Truss/bracket kit for my ford 8.8 swap. Hopefully this weekend the junk D35 will be out and the 8.8 will be in.

I don't have a speed limiter on mine, but I've never taken it past 105.
So does that mean you have a tune? Oh wait, 5.9. Nevermind haha

X2! My buddy's YJ gets ridiculously squirrely on the interstate. He was amazed at how easily mine gets up to speed and how stable it stays.

Yeah, mine's tuned. 5.9s were limited to 115 stock, same as 5.2s.
