Mine was. 4" and 33's. My gearing was what made it possible as I had stock 2.73 with a very healthy v8. Now I have 4.10's and can only go 85-90 max.

Mines not lifted either. Even with 4.88's, I don't know that I'd want to see what top speed would be though.

Yeah I'm not lifted at all, if I was I would never try to go above 80.

In my 4.0 04 Wj with roof rack(spare inside), and 4 lights mounted on the roof rack, I can hit 125 down hill with a tail wind... Can easily cruise 90-100 comfortably (well, as comfortable as driving at 100 mph can be).
Back when I had no roof rack or anything I hit 130 and then I ran out of road....



On a side note...driving jeeps faster than 65 is about as smart as trying to drive a Camry through Rausch creek trails...

FALSE!! hehe 4.5in lift on 37s

not directed towards comptiger5000 but just saying that a properly set up suspension/steering system and balanced tires should allow a rig to drive very nicely at whatever speed you'd like. i can let go of my steering wheel on a washboard highway at 80mph and not worry about it swerving around

'78 CJ5 with 304 and 33" Mud Terrains...85MPH the engine was screaming and I swear I could see the fuel gauge dropping. One of those runs you need to peel your hands off the wheel and take a breather after. I wanted to see what she could do...probably had more in her but not interested in flying off the road anytime soon haha. It gets a bit squirrelly up there I found...
