No idea, the speedo said 100 and mines off by about 5-10%. The incline was almost straight down for about a mile then a gradual turn and straight down again. I think it was probably more momentum cuz I was in 6th flooring it for awhile and the engine was definentely toping off by the sound. I have a friend who was there and can vouch for me on this

We talking about TJs and yes unless someone previously disabled it, your 98 has one.

You know you drive a 5-speed TJ when you borrow your SO's automatic Escape and you slam your left foot in the firewall before starting it.

Mine has 2 loops. 1 is just before the stitches and the other is the actual loop. I just put it in the first loop on the inside of the stitches.

I punched the brake with my left foot in my wife's Explorer, good thing she had her seatbelt on. I was going for the clutch, and it turns out that brake pedal is really wide...

When your house is complicated to get to, so your friends drive around until they find your TJ. Being solar yellow, have no tops or doors, and being one of the few jeeps around, it makes the house stand out.
