Re: WK2 top speed

Why would you want to go faster than that? In the US at least

Re: WK2 top speed

I was thinking that but wasn't going to say it. Unless you're doing 110 on the track, you're putting people's lives at risk.

Re: WK2 top speed

I wouldn't tinker with the speed of a non high performance truck/SUV. Higher center of gravity, the ability to stop or even slow down at higher speed should all be noted before doing something like that. Plus like others stated, you need the tires OEM tires are rated at 118 I believe.....

110 on public roads in a SUV - CRAZY! But, in my youth 125 in my 1995 Mustang GT in the desert near Palm Springs. Of course, it was 3AM, full moon, and empty freeway. I have taken my WK2 up to 90 on I75 in northern Michigan. But, that is as high as I will go.

Re: WK2 top speed

As said before in this post it is because of the tires.

If you know someone from a Jeep dealer, you might be able to unlock the 110 mph limited from your Jeep.

Not necessary true. If you travel during the night, as I do sometimes, the only ones on the road are 18 wheelers and if you know what you doing, going over 100 is a lot of fun, you even find others on the road doing the same thing which makes even better. Having said that, I wouldn't recommend driving fast if you do not know your vehicle 100%, and of corse, during day time, when commuters are on the road.... M2C

Did I mention I have a 3.7 LOL

Re: WK2 top speed

The speed limit here between Dubai and Abu Dhabi is 160kph (100mph). The distance is about 60 miles and I do that twice every day, so a higher limit would be nice
