It's the built-in governor, has nothing to do with the fuel pump alone.

2002 TJ Sport, 5 Speed, 6 Cyl, 3.73 gear ratio, 30" Goodyear Silent Armor, stock suspension, hardtop.
I feel that a confortable crusing speed for my TJ is 60-65 MPH. Will do 80 easy.

That moment when you look at a really nice JK and think to yourself, "Well I SUPPOSE I could see myself trading in my TJ for one of those, but for those ugly ass door handles."

Stock 2004 Rubicon, looks like a factory 2" lift with 31s, comfortable at most any speed, I usually run 70ish with 9 foot long boards on top, maybe the fins provide stability... (Joke)

03 4.0 auto. 6"

I have 35's and factory 3.73. Yea I know.. Lol it will do right at 70 in OD on LEVEL ground. Kick it down to third and it will pick up speed but I never remember to connect my front sway and don't have a rear so 65-70 is where I stop lol. Hit 80 on the downhills on the way south when I bought it. Somehow, it has no wobble. Pretty smooth actually.


Really would like to feel one with 35's and 4.88's.

Wobble in that speed range is fairly common and it usually is due to a tire ballance issue.

05 LJ w 4" lift and 33s.. have had it up to at least 85 mph... but generally cruise the fwy in the 70-75mph range.. I do have to admit that it really sux the gas at that rate of speed, I am sure if I slowed down to 65 it would be a lot easier on the wallet. I will say that my rig doesnt wobble and feels stable at those speeds.

You'll move proper gears to the top of your list if it isn't already there. Gearing is so under-rated.

Imped, your already correct.

I don't understand how people pass them off as unneeded. My jeep strains to go up a hill in reverse in high gear. It's ridiculous.

Not to mention strain on axles and the transmission and engine along with gas mileage.

I just can't decide if I want to pay for gears in my aluminum d44. Everybody here seems to think they are paper weights so I'm undecided.
