How often do you floor it?

I'm curious if anyone else runs their jeep as hard as I do. I'm standing on it pretty much 2-3x per day. At least once for an on ramp and at least once going for a pass.

How about you?

Re: How often to you floor it?

Maybe once a day, on average, when merging or turning into traffic. Beats getting rear ended by somebody looking for their Big Mac.

All the time!! I love hearing the volant cai and once I get the corsa, I probably won't ever "not" floor it.

Re: How often do you floor it?

Nice! I wish I had a v8 sometimes. Must say the diesel is nearly as fun to drive. I get a tiny bit of wheel spin before traction control kicks in and that's not even on sport mode.

As much as possible. The Hemi was built for that!

Re: How often do you floor it?

I don't have a WK2 yet, but my previous 08 SRT8 I enjoyed and probably averaged flooring it once every day or two. The new WK2 Hemi sounded great on the test drive and has nice power, but on a test drive with the V6 I probably wouldn't floor that thing too often. Sounded like it was being strained kind of and I wasn't used to a little V6 sound coming from a big suv.

Re: How often do you floor it?

Even though I drive anywhere between 400 to 1000 miles per week I rarely need to completely floor it to pass someone or enter the freeway.

However I still drive a 2004 Overland with the 4.7HO engine. I am a little worried at reading how often you guys need to floor it with your new WK2s.

Am I going to be disappointed when I get a new Jeep? Is the 5.7 going to be slower than my old HO?

I can't even imagine a 6 cylinder engine in a Grand Cherokee, that would probably need to be floored all the time just to get it to move.
