Thats possible. It sure was a dog at that elevation, plus I had the AC blasting too.

This is the kinda whiny crap I would expect to see in the JK forum. We drive rough riding, leaking, gas guzzling CJ's. Rattle can it and throw it in your Jeep.

You're just talking to a guy that loves open air driving. Hell if it was not illegal I'd have my windshield down on the street too. Not everyone is the same which is cool. It would be really boring if our group had all the same Jeeps and equipment.

Hell with the Harley. I think a BOSS HOSS would suit you a bit better. You're a bit larger frames, and I think you'd make a Harley look like a kid's bike if you rode one

Besides, what's better than a soft tail with a V8 crammed into the frame?

don't you think a V8 on 2 wheels is a bit overkill? Maybe just a tad? LOL

I'd have a hard time hunting off a Harley or hauling a deer or pig out of the woods with one.

I do like the windshield down and the doors off !!
