Re: 5.7V8 545RFE Update / New downshift behavior ?

Have not had the TSB applied yet: when I manually click the shifter to the left, I'm in "5", not "6". Never seen "6" on the Jeep.

Did you notice any improvement regarding the AC? My AC's pretty...

Re: passenger seat noise

Check the seat belt push buckle that's between the center armrest and the seat: mine was hitting the seat the other day making an annoying rattle. I slightly moved the buckle up and it was gone!

Tow mode?

what does the Tow/Haul mode do? Does it give more low end torque?
If engaged w/o actually towing anything, does it do any good like snappier acceleration?? Maybe the Sport mode already does that??

Re: Manual mode

true.

Re: Manual mode

So I guess you hit the rev limiter and just like a manual box, you'll have to shit yourself otherwise you'll keep bouncing off the rev limiter (assuming u keep pedal to the metal!).

Re: Manual mode

Will it upshift if you red line it?? That was my question.
Let's say you put it in 2 and floors it until redline w/o manually switching to 3rd: will it take you to 3rd?

Manual mode

Is the autoshift a real manual? I mean if i put it in 2nd for instance and red line it, will it automatically shift to 3rd or will the rev limiter kick in and keep me in 2nd??

Re: 430N and iPod resolution

Do you get Album aRt so show up at all after you've copied your itunes music onto the HDD?
That seems pretty basic and I can understand why it's not working!
