I have a 2011 Wrangler Sahara 4door. When I shift into 4H everything seems normal, but when I go to move forward about 10 feet the car acts like its hooked to a bungee cord and wants to spring back. Any ideas what this could be? crossed gears , ??? thanks for any suggestions

What kind of surface are you on? Are you trying to turn when this happens?
Drive train binding can feel as if you are being held back.

Have you had it since it was new or did you just get it?
Did it always do this?

Sounds like somebody regeared the rear diff and not the front...

I was on sand and in a straight line. The gear ratio comment makes sense too. I had someone rear-end the jeep and I believe they replaced the rear axle. maybe the ratios are different
