When it drives so damn well on the highway that you don't realize you're doing better than 90 (traveling with a group of cars) until you look down.

See now I don't get that...past 80 I can feel the steering tighten up and handling is greatly decreased...around 90 I'm so paranoid something will blow up...the one time I reached 100 she went out of overdrive and I felt like I might rip a big ZJ shaped hole in space-time

I walked my old 5.2 up to 100 and thought it was going to fall apart or blow up! Slammed on the brakes fast. Lol

I had my '96 4.0 up to 115, it was not worth being scared for your life.

When you laugh at wranglers with 3in of lift and 31s that have to have extended bump stops to keep there 31s out of the fender. But you can stuff 31s with no extra bump stop and the tire dost hit anything
