06 TJ Overdrive Issue

Hi gang,

So, when I drive my wrangler, specifically on the highway and it shifts into overdrive there is a strange vibration. It is worse when the car is under load going up hill or with multiple people in the car. It seems to happen right when it shifts into overdrive at 55mph turning around 2300 RPMs. Especially going uphill is when this happens. I changed the tranny fluid out at 65k and I have 72k on it now. Could it be the rear tranny mount? I have 1 year and 8k miles left on my CPO warranty, but when you bring it in it is a minimum $150 to have them check it out. Hoping to have the problem diagnosed so I can check to see if that is something covered under the warranty.

Thanks,
Tyler

It's the normal super high 42RLE OD.I simply pushed the OD button to cut it off completely unless driving over 70mph.

what rpms are safe to run it at for a long distance? ive been avoiding the freeway as it completly blows, works great with od off until 55 but it seems you need of after 55 or the rpms are high. hell even getting on the freeway its strung out at 3k and wont shift into od until i let off the gas and loose 5mph in the process. i have 33s and stock gearing.
