not much wobble

i want to break the sound barrier in it one day
i did the math, the lowest possible speed to break the sound barrier would be
660.5 mph.
However you will also have to have an ambient temperature of -69F at 59,999' MSL
because if you hit FL600 you'll have to have clearance from ATC and i don't think they would like a Jeep driving around at the same altitude as 747's are flown.

but hey you have a goal good luck

I've been cruzing over 100 in my 06 TJ stock, and hit the governor at what I can guess is 120 downhill... both ways...

Hitting the gov is not fun and almost sent me out of control. It's like throwing it 2 gears down when the tac is pegged...

All this talk of vibrating, Who works on your jeeps?

I run the highways alot in the jeep at 80 - 90 and it feels just fine.


Side Note:::::: If I ever do flip it I dont think it will feel just fine.
