In trying to get anything resembling reasonable mileage out of my '13 JKU Rubicon I am short shifting the shit out of it. Though I prefer a manual, I have to admit considering the Rubicon gearing the auto would be nice for daily driving. I'm in third gear by 20 mph, and fifth gear by 35. That's a hell of a lot of shifting in city traffic! I'd love a transfer case with a third overdrive range.
