You want the tranny to downshift and keep the engine in it's power band. A lugging engine will kill your mileage. I agree the 42rle is a mess. Most turn O/D off from what I hear.

00tj2 Ok, wll on most vehicles that's how they are designed..... Maybe I should be glad I have the nv3550....

But the OP didn't really give that much info so I gave the answer that is correct for 90 percent of the time.... I don't yet have an auto jeep so I guess on hill it's not worth using OD...

^^^ Really? I have the auto in my '05 LJ and it will shift into overdrive going up steep hills following slow vehicles. Not exactly fuel efficient. I keep od turned off most of the time unless i'm on dead flat roads. I get tired of it constantly hunting and seeking between gears under any kind of load. Doesn't happen with OD off. Just my .02 but, the 42rle sucks.

When is the best time to use overdrive to save fuel?
