Automatic Transmission - Switching from manual mode back to drive

Hey everyone, had a question regarding the JK automatic transmission. I'll use manual mode for our mountain passes then want to switch back to drive for the transmission to shift on its own. Is there any better way to do this verse switching to neutral then back down to drive? Thanks!

Yes, if memory serves, its push left to down shift right to up shift? Push and hold right (up shift) and it knocks it out of manual shift mode.

That's how the NAG 1 works.

I do it all the time on the trails. Push the stick left or right to drop it into or out of manual mode and shift it up or down.

That's not as bad as the dog bumping the shifter at highway speeds.

It would be better if when you come to a stop it exits the manual mode. But now it stays in 1st. Who ever thought that was a good idea. Really the manual mode is a bit of a joke except to lock it in 4th on the freeway. I am trying to figure out a way to program in the other 3 gears like the JL's have.

I use it when pulling our trailer. 3.73 with 285's is a bit of a pain when climbing 75mph hills with a full Jeep and a trailer.

I lock it in 1st or second on the trail depending on what I am crawling over. I would not want it to switch to drive every time I stopped. It would defeat the purpose. Not everything in a Jeep is built for highway driving.

OK, I see your point on that. But the Wranglers see more highway that they do trails. If I select shift it to 4 and by slowing down or stopping it goes down to 1 or 2 I would like it go back up to 4, not stay stuck in 1 or 2. But I do see you point of it on trails.

Me too. On the highway I let it do it's thing but on the trails, manual mode and either 1st or second are where it sits most of the day. I let the engine do the braking on steep descents.
