Auto tranny ??

My daughter has a 06 wrangler 6 cyl with automatic with 33" tires ands 3" lift. When you take off from dead stop and just before it shifts into 2nd it seem to almost shift down with a smal "clunk" and then it goes into 2nd. Sorry for such a lousy description but that's what I got. Any ideas before I take it in? Thx...

you have the 42RLE.

things to consider:
1. when's the last time the fluid was flushed and filter was changed? this needs to be done every 60k per the manual, but this tranny seems to like it changed even sooner.
2. use only Mopar approved ATF+4. this tranny is very picky about fluid.
3. You have larger tires, and need 4.88s gears and to swap the speedo gear to recalibrate the speedo and odometer.
4. the 42RLE is known for gear hunting, crappy shift feel and it's very sluggish overdrive.
