|Badfish||yea ac but i hate the roll mitigation and the esp it the worst thing ever put into a vehical. i dont know about the rest of you but mine sees like 90% trail, love the desert, and like no street (only to get to the trail). and as for the auto slushbox just try and follow me off the trail you will never make it. you cant put a price on being able to bounce of the red line to make it up some of the gnarlier of mountain trails. the manual tranny is a must for any true offroader jeep, truck and buggy alike you need the control over the vehical. it has nothing to do with trying to prove anything unless its to prove i can make it up the trail and you cant.|

I bet "true jeeps" don't have a/c, roll mitigation, traction control, auto sway bar disconnect, modular hardtops, satt. radio, cd players, etc.,etc., etc. lol

|Badfish||if you got a stick like a true jeep should be you wouldnt have that problem . i think thats why it was an after thought, like automatics in general|

After a while you get used to it and can easily reach down and switch it without looking.
But it is a bit of a reach and was obviously an afterthought.

|jonwillis231||Why not move it? You can take the switch out, run some extra wire and place the switch where you want it. Then buy a blank switch cover to fill in the hole left by the switch in its original location. Just a suggestion. You will probably have 20 dollars tied up in it if that. But your right, stupid design on Jeeps part. Good luck!|

O/D Switch Location on Automatic JK
This is more of a rant than anything else, but I think the location of the O/D (Overdrive) off/on switch in my new JK is in a dumb place. Located on the front of the floor console in front of the shift lever makes you have to take your eye off the road to operate it.
A much better place would have been to incorporate it into the shift lever, that flat spot on the right side of the handle opposite the detent release would be much better.
I live in a hilly or mountainous terrain and when I'm in a hilly stretch I like to turn the overdrive off, then when I hit a flat stretch turn it back on.
