I'm a new Jeep owner.
I'd like to get some good advice on shifting, as silly as that may sound.
I have a green bar on tacometer that is solid from 0 to 2000, dotted from 2000 to 2500 and absent after that. Obviously the red zone is bad so I've no questions about that.
1: So when is the optional time to shift?
2: What is the sweet spot (RPMS) to ride at?
For example, is riding at 25mph in 2nd gear at 3,000 RPMS less desirable than dropping into 3rd and subsequently dropping the RPMS down to 2,000?
If you were riding down the highway at any given speed for an hour what RPM would you try to maintain?
I know those are noob questions but I don't want to assume I know anything about the vehicle or how to drive it. I'd like some good advice.
