JRIEDY85 I know it's lifted. But I don't know if they dropped the case or anything. It was this way when I bought it from a private seller. 4" suspension lift.

Jerry Bransford Switching your transmission's gear lube to a good synthetic like Redline MT-90 might help its shifting.

So far as it popping out of gear, do you have a body lift and/or a t-case drop installed?

JRIEDY85 Good info! I may try doin that.

dmblair If you warm your jeep up for a few minutes before you leave one thing I used to do in my old YJ is put the T-case in neutral and in first gear and letting the clutch out. This gets everything in the tranny moving and warms up the fluid a lot quicker. Don't forget to set your parking brake if you go back inside.

RevCo666 I let mine warm up before going out and about. We generally get -20c on average so the tranny is really stiff to shift.

andrew127 Thanks for the info! Yeah thats all Ive been recommended for a truly all terrain tire that still has a good tread life to them

JRIEDY85 I love them. Got them about two years ago and have put about 40k miles on them. I still have maybe 3/8" or 1/2" of tread left. Ill prob buy another set this summer when I get new wheels. You won't be disappointed if you get them.

andrew127 Btw how do you like your Goodyear Duratracs? Im putting a 4 inch lift on in a few weeks and have been deciding on which is the right tire to go with.

andrew127 No my 97 does the same thing when its cold out in the mornings. Its just cause all the metal sleeves are very tight together and the oil is cold and therefore thick.

Cold shifting.

I have a 5 speed manual. Anyone else ever have the jeep slip out of gear when it's real cold? Or it's real hard to shift it into reverse. After I drive for a few mins it gets easier. Just wondering if I'm the only one that has this problem.
