I hate the sound of the case grinding . I always get on a slight incline , shut the jeep off , switch gears , and go again . No strain on the linkage , no grinding of gears

That's not right, it should grind horribly trying to shift it in drive.

the mechanics of how gear reduction works in these cases say you shouldn't be able to shift into low at all while still in drive.
