90 is the fastest I've gone. It starts to get pretty uncomfortable around 80-85 in a lifted Jeep.

Put your bacon where your mouth is!

98 once, to test out its max speed. I could've pushed it just a bit more, but at that speed on a straight line I was scared to death. Not something worth doing. Sometimes when passing I get up to 85. Gah, but I hate it when people speed up as you try to pass their slow butts. I drive below the speed limit most of the time because I get abysmal gas mileage as it is. So when you're going 68 and you have to pass people...

Anyway, 98 with 235's. I don't know if I could get it to 98 with the 30's. It's got a lot less power. I can't imagine running 31's. Geeze. I6 = I got nothin'!

Yes, it snows in Texas.

i was gonna make one of these threads lol

in my wj i race everyone that thinks there fast on the highway

ive hit about 113 in it, give or take a few, but in reality its probably closer to 105 for speedo error

it was totally stable going straight, problem is the turns lol

i feel like ive almost flipped it about 4 times

now everywhere i go i learn the right speed for turns so i dont screw up haha

cant wait to my engine blows so i can totally rebuild it LOL

then supercharger, cams headers intake exhaust performance everything, bored out cylinders just everything

its gonna be the ultimate sleeper

when i was with my dad driving, he took it up to 160km (about 100mph) through some straightaways after we were stuck behind some slow ppl for a really long time on a 2 lane highway.

But I'm not lifted.. I wouldn't want to push it very hard if I get anything more then 2"

tbh only twice, one of them was a new gt-r but that wasnt fair LOL

the other one was a bmw 535

i know its not a race machine but highway driving is way different then driving straight up like on a 1/4 mile

i usually cruise around like 80 maybe 75

when someone is passing theyre going too fast, so i go after them, pass them and dont let them pass me again

im gonna start recording when i drive because i miss way too much good stuff, ive beaten all kinds of cars man, old muscle cars, ricers, a tahoe SS, a lexus is350, a gti, monte carlo ss, a sexy looking volvo, a new tl type S, a bunch of kids from my school haha

its the driver not the car when it comes to high way, unless theres alot of turns then my jeep sucks haha
