When your friends/family have a new vocabulary because you talk about your ZJ so much

This is totally me. I did find the time to go purchase the new CV I just need to install.

When your morning routine includes a checklist of what you need in the back to make sure you can drive it back home. Or the just in case list

Got to the line all the way 125 in my V8 and it kept going faster it did not try to hold me back

Do the 5.2s have limiters?

They should be limited at 115, AFAIK. Does yours have a Mopar Performance ECU on it? If so, those either removed the limiter or raised it to 130, can't remember which.

This ^ love the base model a lot less junk that I don't need like beeping Vic's and overheads that my v8 had.

OT:
When you get death wobble after a wheeling trip and you're confused because there should be no reason since almost everything is in top shape -.- except the uca's which could use some tending to but probably not the cause.

Still had a good time though
