120mph on the highway, stock tires I was racing a 1992 Si Honda Prelude, we were on the phone and i wanted to see how fast i could go because i know the 85mph mark wasnt the max, my needle was all the way down half ways, he said he was reading 120 at the max moment.
I also haul *** against any other general car at start off. On the road i've only been beat by 1 truck, and that was a V8 dodge xxxx, i didnt catch what kind of truck it was because he was going a bit too fast, but it was a huge truck, diesel i bet.
Stock, not downhill. I have 113k on it. By the way yesterday i went wheeling and on the way there i was doing 77mph on a 55mph even though my radar was going off we still got a speeding ticket (I had the music too loud). Well that's my first ticket, anyone know how much they normally run? I hear they charge you per mile over the speed limit (they didnt have a speed limit sign either, but he said when there isnt one its always 55mph).
I hate thinking about how stupid I was doing this, but I have gotten it around 110 or so on the freeway and find myself approaching 100mph too often...not on purpose, of course
If it were at stock height with appropriate tires, then it'd be no big deal...but, not very bright at 4.5" and 32's...problem is, this thing likes to cruise at higher speeds, although my gas bill doesn't agree, lol...
needless to say, I certainly don't recommend these Jeeps to be going so fast...one false move...ouch...

I've had mine up to 110 on the freeway, in stock form, she still had more to give but I ran out of courage. I LOVE to hear that 5.2 rumble when I stand on it. It was starting to get a little unstable. Some idiot thought it was funny to get in front of me and slam on the brakes. I was trying to outrun him so he couldn't do it anymore. ZJ can't compete with a stratus. After he nearly creamed me and an RV at the same time I just let him go. He did it to every SUV he came accross on the road. We were behind him for about 50 miles or so. If I'd been alone in the Jeep, I probably would have put him in the ditch. Wife didn't think that would be a good idea so, an a$$hole got to live another day.
This aint your daddy's Jeep!
