Hmm. Really? That changes my opinion slightly. I'll have to see how that changes things.

Re: ERS question

On the Hemi ERS locks out the second overdrive gear, 5th in Drive. Normally 3rd gear has the 1:1 drive ratio, with 4th and 5th as overdrive gears.

The hidden second gear (kickdown/passing) becomes a new underdrive gear, and the 1:1 gear (normally 3rd) becomes 4th gear. 5th gear is the first overdrive gear.

Refer to the chart on page 358 of the Owners Manual.

I will have to retract my previous statement about ERS not working well. It was my misunderstanding of the feature that lead to that notion. I read the manual, and put quite a few miles on the truck this weekend playing with the ERS, among other things. It works as designed, and very well, at that.

My only complaint is that I wish it downshifted quicker, but again - the jeep wasnt designed for me to dump gears before entering a corner.
