On a 05 Rubicon, what is the differance in D1 and D2? I just traded up a few weeks ago. I can't really tell there is any change when I switch from D1 to D2?

From what my buddy tells me that has a 03' Rubicon, D1 is geared more
for slower, & more torque. D2 is for more power, or those long trail rides
if that makes any sense. To clarify what i just said, D1=Work & D2=Play.

D1 the tranny shifts at peak horsepower. D2 the tranny shifts at peak torque.

I have never saw that diagram before. That definatley clears it up.
D1 for sport or trail ridin' & D2 for more torque.

I love the Ribicon, overall, But Now for what I DON"T like. The auto will NOT dig form a dead stop on a bank or a obstical?? It just sits there and strains. Back up as little as a foot or two, hit 1/2 throttle and it will hammer??
The old Four Trax would at least did a hole butted up against something?
