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.

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.

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.
