I just realized that I have yet to have used the 6th gear in my JK, even when I have commuted between Norfolk and Richmond...has anybody else find this to be typical...I'm almost afraid to use it...would mess up what I have been used to.

6th is your overdrive. Just like 5th on a 5 speed. Definately ripping yourself off.

my 3:21's render my 6th gear almost useless. :bawling:

i only manage to use it on straight, level roads. hills? forget it, unless it's a downhill. :shaking:

I use 6th all the time, they are not for climbing hills they are an overdrive so you do end up shifting alot but that's why I got a manual so I could shift, that's the fun of having a manual tranny. :bounce:
