Re: manual shifting

I used to put my 4.0 in 2nd or 1st. I did give my friends a good scare by blipping the throttle when I was in first hehe

Re: manual shifting

I can't drive in D without getting frustrated with the lag in the TCM. I autostick all the time except in heavy traffic. I'm much more into manual transmissions so this is the closest I'm going to get in the Jeep.

BTW Ben, heel-n-toe is a dying art b/c of paddle-shifters.

Re: manual shifting

As much as possible. Nothing beats the 6.1 rumbling in 2nd or 3rd gear around town. Especially with the Zoomers screaming out back. I love when I'm engine braking and the exhaust is popping. Gives me the chills. Lol.

Re: manual shifting

I autostick that bitch all day everyday. There are days in traffic in NYC, that I dont get out of first gear. lol I love when you get to almost the max of first gear and let the Jeep coast and you hear the exhaust popping like Eddie said. Everyone looks at you like is that a Jeep, wtf?
