Did you try 4 lo? I've had similar experiences with all my jeeps in 4 hi - I'm often amazed at how little it takes stop them in 4 hi.
yup. 4hi. it was just booooooooooooog when I stomped on it. I am not used to that so I have no clue if its "normal" I used to only drive a manual so certain things still feel oddDid you try 4 lo?

Yep,, 4Lo..coming home from work on a snowy day a women did a 360 & went into the woods / stuck. 4Lo & my snatch strap wasn't even an issue, pulled her right up & out of there.... She was still thanking me as I pulling away... Last Saturday Raiusch Creek on a trail ride , pulled 2 tj's out same (4Lo and wasn't an issue.You should have used 4 lo. 4 hi and the auto has a tendency to do that. Normal. Just not enough rpm's.
What you are describing is the same scenario I was talking about in an earlier post. I remember once in my XJ trying to back up an incline to get out of someone's way. The incline was steep, but not that steep. I thought I was in 4 lo (have an Atlas II in it), but was actually in 4 hi. Basically the vehicle just stopped. I gave it more and more gas and it just wouldn't move. The engine revved a bit but nothing broke loose and "no go". I thought I had broken something. Then I looked down at the levers and knew what the problem was. After shifting into 4 lo, it backed right up without any problem.4l/4h is not the question (I did not really have the room to shift to 4L) but the slip before even a tire broke loose.
Maybe I am just used to a manual or a v8
