True, but it would be difficult to shift all of the time, not just the first 15 minutes.

The OP stated that the fluid was changed...that's why I am leaning in that direction.

If the tranny is indeed a NV3550, then I would recommend Royal Purple Synchromax.

Found this thread through Rusty's revamp of the FAQ's in YJ Tech so keep the torches at bay.

A technique I use to help warm the tranny up faster when it's cold out is shift the T-fer to neutral and then shift the tranny to 5th. Set the brake and let the Jeep warm up as you would. Tranny should shift normally sooner.
