    No worse than anything else really like a Tahoe, Escalade, Suburban, Explorer/Excursion, Envoy, etc etc. I can't imagine the other HEMI Jeep, the 5.7 one, gets insanely better mileage either...

    I saw one last month on my morning highway commute. Drove together for a few miles. I didn't even think about trying it. No way I would have even come close to the top-end that thing has. It looked like it had some major power. He decided he wanted to get somewhere a bit sooner than planned, and just pulled away like a comet.

    If I was in the Goat, however, I might have tried a couple short pulls

    that's what I was thinkin', top-end would be tricky. Plus, those kind of matchups don't prove much and can get out of hand, speed-wise.

    Aye. That reminds me of when I hit 130 chasing an Audi S4 down a mountain side. I was an idiot.

    Young dumb and full of... vinegar.

    my dumb ass definitely went 156 in my Stage 2 06. (That's what the AccessPORT read anyways...)

    I was on an abandoned desert road in the middle of the mojave national park, but that was probably the dumbest thing I've ever done.

    I don't consider my car fast either. I don't think it's slow, I just don't see it being anything special.

    My friends Liberty got a cool 14/15 mpg. He doesn't hook up his car or mess around. Drives it like an old man. Absolutely horrible. His Magnum gets slightly better but I think that's a 6 cylinder? Whatever their downgraded engine is now a days.

    You know, as I get to modding my car and going through the "Stages" if you will, and playing with potential HP and TQ numbers, I start to sort of find myself drifting off...dreaming of the land of the 2.5....
