Sweeeeet! A highway worthy Jeep again!

For the first time in at least a year or more I can finally do 75mph and it's nice and smooth. After the new driveshaft, shocks, and gears last weekend it still had a vibe around 65mph, so I took it in for an alignment and had the tires balanced. The fronts were a little cupped from being out of alignment for so long, and I never had the tires balanced since I put them on. I moved the fronts to the back and after a balance the thing drives like a dream, even on the highway! I'm pretty stoked since it's been so long, I can actually drive it to some further places now!

Finally got mine down the highway and got up to 60mph. Pretty good for me for now. Still have some front-end work to go but for now so far so good.

wow a jeep that can do 75, it's been a long long time since i've had a jeep that can do that, i don't think my yj when it was stock would do 75. Have fun with it, it's nice to be able to drive a jeep on the street.

It's got plenty more past that, but I was happy with that and don't see myself needing anymore than 75.
It's also nice to be able to use 5th gear, 3.73's and 35's really sucked. But with 4.56's I can use it at 45 now.
At least the drive down to deepwater won't be so scary now. It was real shaky before, and could only do about 60mph "safely", and the speed limit is 70 most of the way. Makes for some road raged people. [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img]
