2nd Gear

Does anyone have the problem when it's cold out 2 nd gear is hard to catch and grinds a bit. When the engine get very warm it gets better? Thanks

Sorta typical of the NVG3550, but you didn't state what trans. you have.

My Jeep does it every time until the tranny warms up a bit.

My 5 speed never did that before I installed a 1.25" body lift. Now after the body lift it does that with 2nd and reverse until it warms up
