I think a lot of people are like me and got Max Tow for the upgrades it brings like the 4.10s, wider axles, HD brakes, and larger rad. Or at least that's why I got it, those all seem like worthwhile upgrades to me for everyday driving and playing in dirt when I want, since I don't towMy first real build consideration was a Sport S Max Tow. However, spending a few months on the forum & building different configurations helped me figure out the model I really want. I also wanted a manual transmission for my first Jeep, so I test drove one & loved it. Couldn’t figure out what all the complaining was about? I realized that I have nothing to tow, so what in the world do I need a max tow for? I do a lot of camping & kayaking at the most I may pull a small trailer for camping gear / kayaks, I won’t even get close to the 4000 Lb limit. Payload was a much more important consideration, as I will be loading my gladiator pretty good at times. So a manual Sports S with a 1600 Lb payload & all the options I want fits the Bill for me. Ordered it on 12/ 11 from Tri-City Jeep, just waiting for the good news of its arrival!
According to the thread you referenced (I went all the way through it), only Rubicon is limited to 97.
I thought Mojaves were also limited to 97 mph along with the Rubicons because they both share the same unique sets of OEM tires, but I been wrong before.According to the thread you referenced (I went all the way through it), only Rubicon is limited to 97.
