I wasn't saying we didn't have a speed limiter..just saying the newer ones are higher than 112 (at least for the V6). Since the Firestone Destination A/T only speed rated to 118 I not gonna push it more..but at 120 its still a smooth ride..surprisingly.

Actually, the Firestone Destinations A/T is a P rated tire, good to 93mph.

"P" stands for passenger. It's a "T" rated tire which means 118mph.

T means a tire can travel 118 mph (190 km/h) for extended periods.

It's a Jeep, if I wanted to go fast I wouldn't have bought another Jeep. LOL

No tail wind, it's called mods the help the top end of a Pentastar and the speed limiter being removed.......
My '91 AWD Eagle Talon with a 2.0T did 145mph, but only 195 HP. Wayy better aerodynamics though and over 1000 lbs lighter. That Mitsu powerplant was a different animal though, no low end torque high revver. Kinda hard for me to picture a KL going almost that fast... I guess roughly 300 HP could do that.

You are actually pretty close.....approx 320hp was what I had, and the pentastar LOVES high RPMS especially with supporting mods

Fact is, I could get away with going 145mph back in the day, but today I would lose my license for a long time, pay something like a $10K fine and have my vehicle impounded. No racetrack around here to do it legally, no Autobahn. So yeah, no thanks ;)

I don't see it being hard to believe, I was the first one to put an unlocked PCM in a 3.2 cherokee and get it tuned.....also the quickest 3.2 TH in the 1/4 mile.....so yeah I usually tend to talk out of my ass and lie all the time.
