Overdrive

So I have 13 that I just regeard 513s on 37s and all in all I love it . But I think it No longer gose into OD.
I can get the Eco light to come on but I'm not sure it going into OD . If I hit the tapshift it says it's in 5th . Would it say something else?

5th is OD on a 3.6L JK. It never says OD, just 1-5.

Unless something is broken, if it says 5 it's in 5th gear unless you gas it really hard to get it down-shift in manual mode (manual mode is will never up-shifts, and hesitates much more to down-shift).

5.13 gears on 37's and the 3.6L auto transmission should be doing 2700RPM at 70MPH. If OD is failing to work and you're in 1:1 4th gear, it'd be 3250RPM at 70MPH, so you should be able to determine what gear it's truly in by looking at the tach on the highway.
