It's always amusing to see every car pass me out on the highway. I usually go around 60-70mph. When I get around 75, things get scary (lots of vibrating).

I'm glad i'm not the only one that doesn't feel comfortable much over 70mph. Short wheelbase, big tires, tall suspension, marginal brakes equal not the best high speed machine.

I've been all the way to the rev limiter/governor on my 05 Rubicon. Speedo was indicating 93MPH at the time the rev limiter/governor kicked it.

P.S. I also did this when I was first test driving my Jeep before I bought it. The salesman thought I was insane. I told him if I'm going to own it I want to know what it can do before I spend 30K on it! I think I scared the **** out of him lol

I think I've had mine to about 70. I know it will go faster, just don't see a need to. I could get in the car or the truck if I wanted to go much faster. I didn't buy a Jeep for speeding across the country, certainly not through neighborhoods. That was for my young and stupid days.
