speed
 
i own a '98 sport and on the highway i had no problem hitting 90,
looking at the '05 x w/6speed is that still possible?

mrbigjeep 10-17-2006 08:15 AM

sure why not? the only difference is the tranny. i got an 06 x with the 6 speed and i think it'll hit 90 like your wantin...to be honest though i haven't gotten over 80 so i can't say for sure

Yes, you will be able to hit 90, but I believe that Jeep has limited the speed to 90 do to rollover concerns, starting in '03.

I've done 100 once in my 99 with 35's on it. And that was because we were testing the new tranny and I forgot about the 15% difference on the speedo. Looked down realized I was doing over a hundred and was like "No wonder the lines are coming by really fast with out the doors on" :D Never did that again.

I took my 01 w/4 in. lift and 33's on a business trip to indiana and I was doing 85-90 the whole way except in construction areas on I-70. It didn't feel any differnet than when I go 55 around town here:cool:

I am happy if i can get mine up to 45mph. Did do 85 once in the truck pulling the jeep on the trailer, does that count?

FuzzyDolly 10-18-2006 03:40 PM

I actually hit 97 in my 05 X. Lets just say I'll never be doing that again!

Do it in an open topped, no doored CJ5 with a fiberglass frontend and lap belts. 80 feels like you're running Daytona and at 90 it like you're getting ready to leave the runway. I've been to 95 with my 04 and it just feels way too fast.

70 mph is the fastest I've hit and that was nerverackling,
by the way I was in the right lane which was the
slowest believe it or not.:confused:

Dare2BSquare 10-18-2006 04:11 PM

70 is my limit. And that's pushing it!!!

You said it, bro. I don't want to drive my Jeep fast anyway. The girls can't check me out as easily....

Dare2BSquare 10-18-2006 04:55 PM

Yeah, there is something to be said for just tooling around being cool.

biffstephens 10-18-2006 05:01 PM

70 is about all I do in mine.....seems to be terminal velocity in my rig case...

SportsGal501 10-18-2006 05:44 PM

Come to think of it when I was doing 70 mph
in the right lane,a Black Unlimited TJ was in the middle lane...flew past me
like I was standing still.They had to be pushing close to 90mph.

All I could think of was..."Well there goes The Grim Reaper":eek:

Texapple 10-18-2006 08:46 PM

70 makes me nervous in heavy traffic.....I toodle around at 55-65 and get there alive :D
