Default 4x4 low

the down hill thing makes sense.
& yes the M works perfect, acts just like a manual trans., shifts great.
i just wondered about D .

thanks for the input

Default shift points

thanks for the input,
but, it seems to me to be totally upside down.
"D" should shift at exactly the same rpm in high or low range.
then if i want put around the motor is not revving to 3000-4000, for absolutely nothing, for hours at a time.
if you want to rev it to the moon, then us "M".
to me i just can't wrap my brain around this, it seems so basically dumb.

thanks
mike

think here for a second...these transmissions are electronically controlled...so when it is in 4lo it will change the shift points...keep the engine in as low of a gear as possible..

I think it makes sense the way the shift points are set for 4lo. The times that you need 4lo, you'll be crawling over things or climbing high grades, so you'll want to keep the transmission in gear through a longer rpm range.
