IIRC, I was clocked at almost 70MPH in 4Low with my SBC/th350/D300 and 3.54 gears. I won't say at what RPM that was

Yeah, but what it has in speed it lacks in off road ability.

I've always wanted to have a few Jeeps set up for different things. I want to have a lowrider, I want to have a race Jeep, and I want to have a drag Jeep. That's along with my DD Jeep and my Buggy Jeep.

I thought about putting an IFS like a Mustang 2 front end on, wider front tires, and making it handle like a sports car. (Technically my Jeep is midengine, since the motor is set back entirely behind the front axle, and the weight distribution is a perfect 50/50.)

My Top Speed..

I did 107mph on the A3 (Autobahn) going back home in the Regensburg area. I drive a 2002 Jeep Liberty Limited. I routinely drive faster than 95mph otherwise it looks like I'm not even moving

What happens in my KJ stays in my KJ °llllll°

Why? Do you not drive faster than that or are you having fuel issues? Your gearing is perfect.

It's just the gearing. Note I have the auto trans (yuck). It's geared perfectly for 35's but Im still running 33's. At 57 I'm doing about 2850 rpm in 3rd gear in the auto. I COULD go faster but I don't like when the rpms get up to 3200-3500, that makes me nervous.

Now you got me wondering!?!?! This is normal right? Having the auto trans, 2600 should be my target which 35's should do. I don't think I have a fuel issue, a lot of other issues at the moment, but my motor has always been super reliable.

Yeah after I posted I noticed you have the auto. The auto sucks up a lot of power and you lose two gears.

I don't like going over 3k rpm either. I shift at 2.5k.
