BOUGHT A mOAB - HOW DO YOU USE THE AUTO SHIFTER

When shifting the auto trans manually how does it work? Can you shift to a higher gear 5 while going slow? Do you have to be doing a certain speed? Seems like while going 25 mph I can't put in 5 only up to 4. Thanks Ron

just slap the stick to the right and it will shift throught the gears manualy.. I wish there was an option to turn it off as it often gets stuck in first when my wife puts her purse there. personaly I do not find it all that usefull. might be usefull when crawling.

Yes it is, more like amazing. In a Rubi it really shows off its wizardry in the rocks. If you read up on what is in a w580, how it works. hard to belive we got this in a Jeep. you may not feel it but each gears has two stages.

But yes i too wish they had a OFF switch. as I have had people push it with an arm etc. Dumping us into low and reving the motor. It is touch little beast mine takes hardly a touch to shift it. just rest your hand and hit a bump can.

I thought this was an issue also, but hitting neutral then back to drive is not an issue.

The use of to neutral is critical off road. Its a good thing they did make justa tap UP. If you ever get on something very steep where you are about to do a front over rear flop. N is like a cutch it will roll out. Just dont hit the brake until you KNOW it wont unload the springs and flip you over anyway. Like I said this trans they used is the cats a$$ compared to the last 42rle 4 speed. Pluss it can handle up to 426ftlbs. compared to the later trans that was about 250ftlbs. I think the best of the lastest Jeep is this trans not the motor. Put this trans in a 011 would be like going from 3:2o gears to 4:1. fun stuff just to bad its lke a 1200$ option.
