He has asked at least 5 today. There comes a point when you need to search first. If you can't find a specific answer by searching then fine.
Oh, your right I didn't see that. A little much there op.

And op, what do you mean? I don't have an auto, but doesn't yours have the 42rle? That's a 3 speed with over drive right? So I would think your 1st and 2nd gears would be used a lot more than just off road.. I mean my 6 speed stick has a granny first and I still use it on the street. I can't imagine your first is any lower. I do have the 3.07 rear end though..

Its so you can select only those gears with a auto. I.E. when engine braking.

ok thank you I looked it up on google before posting this and none of them were jeeps. Also should I use them for off roading purposes or just put it in drive?

Putting the shifter in first will keep your jeep from going into second gear..it's good for engine braking on hills and what not.

The shifter in second usually makes it start in second gear but some trannies will also give you first...depends on the vehicle. Starting in second lowers torque to the wheels making easier starts in snow/mud/rain especially on inclines...also engine brakes but at higher speeds than first gear.

As I said. Every auto has that ability. Trucks cars vans doesn't matter. Does the same for all of them....

Just wondering. Is this your first vehicle?

I randomly stumbled upon this thread and it made me laugh. I seriously think that not a single person in this thread actually knew how to answer this question, with the exception of severedistortion. This was a great question, one that the vast majority of Americans (including everyone who responded) doesn't know how to answer. If you are still wondering, let me know, I would be happy to explain.

Come on guys, why make a guy feel dumb for asking a great question?

This guy or Troll was run off of here some time ago. No need to bring him up again. Just search on all his threads/posts. They were just BS to spin people up.
