Yeah.. Does it lock up around 40-45mph though? because when i had my 96, cruising it would go into a lower rpm, and not change pitch except while speeding up.

is the lock-up anything special?

Ok im as confused as ever now. The past two days ive been searching for an answer. Here is the problem; With the cruise contol set at 60-65 driving on the highway flat ground the rpms will jump all of a suddon from 2250 to 3000 (approximation) then the cruise stops working and the rpms keep surging back and forth and i cant set the cruise again. I thought i found a solution (havent tried yet still researching) either the NSS or trans solenoid but now the Torque Converter card gets delt. BTW 01 xj 3" lift tc drop 255/75/15 tires if i missed anything its on my profile. Any suggestions?

Id say the cruise problems and the rpm change are two different problems. The rpm change is the transmission downshifting to keep up the speed you set on the cruise control

I would agree if i was on hilly terrain but im running completely flat road no elevation changes at all so the trans should have no reason to downshift to keep up. thank you for the responce and advice.
