I've done 85 in Mom's WJ before. I've hit 85 in the 5.9 before when passing, but never kept it there.

haha i like driving on the deerfoot when im down in calgary, the henday is still really slow.. construction and traffic lights

The cops between Ponoka and Lacombe are really anal about the speed limit.. no more then 10 km over the limit.

Honestly, driving over 85 in a Jeep of any kind other than the SRT8 is foolhardy at best. Twitchy steering, scary handling. That's at stock. I think keeping it to the speed limit is probably best. They're not meant for speed, and going 100+ is definitely speeding anywhere in the US or Canada. It's fun to see what they can do, but I don't really think I'd try it again. It's not worth the risk. Either of life, limb, or of getting a ticket.

if you know how to hold a steering wheel straight, its not a big deal bud.

its definitely still dangerous, but its not like your dipping through traffic at that speed. a jeep would flip in a second if you tried to move more then just a little at that speed.

Never been over 90 in any vehicle. I'm more afraid of blowing something up than getting a ticket.

I can steer, but Jeep steering was never meant for performance racing. It gets very twitchy at that speed. One gust of wind, one bump in the road, or one miscalculation, and you could lose it easily. I tried to see what she could do once, and I learned that I don't ever want to do it again. It's just not worth the 'thrill.' Someday I'll get a Subaru for that.
