I could imagine its about 130ish?

*edit* I lied. V6 is limited at 112 mph.

Couldn't find the info, and threw out a guess.

Have you drive one with the V6 ? I'd be suprised if it could hit 115 without the limiter...

I truly donít know how fast Iíve had my ZJ up to. The speedometer stops at 100MPH. The WJ Iíve had up to 115MPH. Iím sure the V8 still had some left in it. I donít see the V6 pushing the WK over 100MPH though. Its such a heavy Jeep and the V6 has a hard enough time getting it up to 75MPH on the freeway.

I got it to 110. Seemed a bit light on the touch with the wind buffeting at that speed. Tach was in the 5500 range.

Well goodie for you. LOL. You donít have the same stupid limiters we have here in the states. Iím sure the diesel had no problems pushing the Jeep up to that either. Iíd like to know what that chip dose for them too. I donít remember what its called, but the Aussies are all over it.

I'm sure it would have. My RPMs were up there though. I don't remember off hand. Some where past 3,300. Heres a shot of me and my ZJ doing 95MPH. This was taken south bound on HYW 89A coming back from Lake Powell / Page Arizona. Lot of flat straight road out on the reservation. Only fear was hitting some stay sheep or running into a res-cop.



Iíve had my Lexus up to 155 before it got rolled (wasnít my fault, and I wasnít driving and had nothing to do with going fast). It still had power to go. The only other time I drive fast like that was in a Camaro my father and I built. Took an í85 Vett engine and dropped it into his í83 Z28. Car flew wit that engine.

Im talking about a brand new jeep not a ZJ like yours so maybe the new ones are a bit faster
My fiend had a 1996 ZJ with a I6 and we had i well over 100mph before

The fastest i have ever been was in my step dad's 06 mustang Gt conv. We were doing 120mph and still gaining speed, then the hood poped up and caught on the saftey latch (Lets just say i needed to change my pants)

Oh and i have been about 115mph on a Arctic cat 440 sno pro, racing my dad on a Arctic cat F7 , well lets just say i got been, badly

Oh and here is the 440 sno pro and the F7 (F7 will do 145mph)
