It would help to post the year, model, transmission, etc.

However, if you have one of the ZJ's with overdrive, turning it off is recommended for towing in the owner's manual. You can start with it off, drive as fast as you want [not towing] with it off--with a bit of respect for the engine lasting very long.

Re: Over Drive off mode

If you still have your 2004 WJ, then there is no speed limit for using overdrive off. Your engine will rev higher (it will stay in 3rd gear and lock the torque converter clutch) and can eventually go to redline when you drive fast. Engine noise will increase and mpg goes down.
Are you going to tow?
