you know you drive a zj when even fellow jeepers dont get it

sr22!
Nope, didn't drive my old 5.9 Ram like that either, or any other vehicle I've had (see exception below), regardless of the power.
I've lost too many friends because they or someone else thought that driving like an idiot was a good idea, or because a deer decided to cross the road at the wrong moment.
Driving a car that was meant to go fast 100+ mph on public roads is a bad idea, doubly so for a Jeep. That's what tracks are for.

When I lived in Germany, though, had no problem doing that and more, but then again their roads are actually well maintained, clean, and people there don't drive like idiots. (Interesting note - anyone can take a lap on the Nurburgring for a few Euros in any car)

Why do you think "grandpa" is still alive?

My insurance is like $120 a month...not bad at all. I've never been pulled for speeding. $300 valentine one radar detector ftw.

sorry about your friends that really sucks


BUT !

being overly cautious to the point of being dangerous to others is one way to still be alive in a darwinian kinda way i guess

you do know you are driving the original quick and capable suv though right and not everyone who goes 100 does it with no sways and one headlight out ffs '' aeww jaminy is the awnly place for proper motoring '' say it in a posh british accent

around here most do 90+ interstate btw

He is still right, its reckless and incredibly unsafe to drive that fast on majority of US roads. Speed limits are in effect for a reason!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not sure how staying closer to the speed limit qualifies as being "overly cautious to the point of being dangerous to others".
If the speed limit was dangerous to others, they'd change it.

YKYDAZJW - You drive 148 miles to Columbiana, Ohio for the 4WD Jeep Jamboree, beat on it for 3 hours, then drive 148 miles back home without breaking anything and putting lifted Wranglers to shame.

Seriously, I'd never drive the ZJ at 100mph, unless I mistakenly went off a cliff, a really high cliff.
Now, the ST? that's another story........that's a machine that's happier when it's in triple digits.

When you open your drivers door and it sounds like just rippled it off.


Who's door does this too? I heard the similar "oh-****-sounds-like-titanic-is-sinking-creaking-noise" in a Albertsons parking lot...look over and I see this guy getting into his white limited.

Out doing Jeep things..

Mine did up until a few months ago when I put new hinge pins & bushings in it.
