It's way too frickin' fast, that's what it is.

I've only gone 75, and its so loud its unbearable! I prefer to stick to 60 if I can manage it. When people fly past me I just assume they are too jealous to be close to me

My 87 with the 6 in it, 4" leaf over suspension lift, and 33" tires. I got to 75mph around Baltimore before i slowed down, it dont vibrate or anything. But each bump i could almost swear id get air born lol and i have a tighter n more sensitive steering than my race car lol so i was worried id hit a bad bump n over steer

Took my 95 YJ up to about 90. Hard to tell everything was shaking so hard. I happened to glance over at the passenger seat and it was vibrating so fast I thought some kind of portal was going to open up and I was going to make one of those time space jumps. Ubber freaky!

Mine hits 110+ pretty regularly. The speedlimiter kicks in at ~115. Can't wait to get rid of that and see how fast it really goes.

I had my stock 99 xj to 105ish -just over 100- before I thought I saw a cop and slammed the brakes hard. It held pretty steady the whole time.

my 4 squirrels got me (solo) up to about 75 before I just realized this aint the vehicle to cruise at these speeds in... fairly stable (stock ride height) but noisy as hell with the ragtop, and a bit of wheel vibe - very comfortable at and below 60...

if I'm rolling long distance highway for/with family travels... its the Suburban or nothing.

not my first choice for any drive on open roads for more than 25-30 minutes... if it involves anything where 3rd and 4th gear are the mainstay with lots of shifting... i'll take this thing any day!

we have a good number of single to 1.5 lane gravel farm / rural roads out west of Leesburg, this thing eats those alive... fun at 35-40 in 3rd gear...

83mph was the fastest so far. It still had power and it was tracking fine, but it started pinging.
I'll usually do 75 on the highway.

I hit 110 in the ZJ yesterday trying to keep up with a group on the highway. It was doing fine, but loud as hell. Once I looked down and saw the needle flirting with the 110 mark I nope-ed out and backed off.
