trouble in reverse.

I was backing up a rather steep hill yesterday and it felt like I was having to give a lot more gas pedal than normal. And until I got going it was halfway lurching. Nothing crazy but noticeable. Is this a jeep thing ?
04 lj automatic.

Dumb question but I ask only because it happens to me once in a while. Was your parking break on by chance? I usually find out pretty quickly because it won't let me go forward but it will let me back up, just with some added resistance.

Yeah, I work in IT and more often than not I over think the problem and it winds up being something simple. I need to remember the motto KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid). Sorry I can't be of any help, that was really all I got.
