2003 Transmission KJ Liberty Freedom Edition

Just purchased my KJ Freedom Edition. This is the first Jeep I have ever owned. I have the 3.7 engine with automatic tran. but at low speeds (10-20 mph) it feels as if it needs to shift and there is lots of engine braking. In other words instead of coasting in a parking lot I actually have to apply the gas. Is this normal for Jeep KJ's or Jeep in general? Or is this something I should have checked out with the transmission? Also it shifts up and down constantly--is this normal? I live in the Pittsburgh area with many hills and grades.

Oh I love my KJ and I am putting in the new RB1 Navigation Radio in as soon as it arrives.

well automatic tranny's do constantly shift up and down based on engine load but if yours is doing so more frequently than what you're used to maybe the dealer needs to address the problem.You didn't state whether you had full time or part time 4wheel drive or even if you simply have two wheel drive.Remember that what you have is a fairly stout vehicle related more to a truck than a car so ride,shift patterns and noise will all be different from say a lexus or something. It's a Jeep after all is said and done.
