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.

|DBoat||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.|

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.

|sstryk||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)|

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.

Come on dude. We're not all 16 here. Internet-based responsible driving classes aren't needed.

I have a 20" lift and run 55" tall tires and I cruise all day long at 120 mph but I have to stop for gas every 15 minutes.
wow there's a lot of wranglers being driven wicked fast.

Small child playing on the freeway? I'm from the country, if something like that, usually a dog, runs into the road it's the owner's fault for having a dumb dog.

65 feels comfortable on the MTZ's. It was more comfortable/faster on the stock AT's. Anything faster and the steering feels a bit vague and I need to concentrate to keep the speed up. I wouldn't really want to be going 80mph+ in it.
The speedo over-reads by about 5mph with stock tyres too. I've not changed the gear in mine and using a GPS it reads accurately now (but the mileage will be out).

|NCJeepin||Usually run ~60-65 on I40 where I live. It's pretty hilly and I'm not regeared yet so I lose speed on the hills. I think that speed is a good compromise for mpg and I usually don't have anywhere to get to in a hurry. For more busy interstates, ie 85 & 95, I go about 68-72. I guess I'm a pretty relaxed driver.|

05 LJ, 3.73, 33x10.50, 3" lift.
Typically drive at 65-70 in the interstate.
No problem pushing to 80+ if I need to get around someone.
|07-02-2013 11:11 AM|
|Imped||It happens at about 90 mph.|
|07-02-2013 11:01 AM|
Take it to 90 and see for yourself.

[QUOTE=Imped;3920059]Comfortable all the way up to fuel cutoff.
What do you mean fuel cut off? Am I missing something? New to my TJ...
|07-02-2013 10:02 AM|
Yeah, Jesus. I don't drive my jeep like my BMW, I give A LOT more room in front, but really see no issue running higher speeds if you've upgraded your brakes to match your tire size.
As for deer, that's what I bought a bumper for.
|07-02-2013 09:47 AM|
Comfortable all the way up to fuel cutoff. Not sure why so many people are 'squirrely' at 70+.....
Far from a factory TJ.

Statistically, and practically, rural/back roads are much more dangerous.
