    yep bank account is running low from it..
    Two things i can think of other cant be you, your 2wd

    One like you said transmission downshifting.

    Two You center carrier bearing and or the ujoints are at to high of a angle and binding up some do to lift. You can drop the center bearing try some washers and longer bolts see if the angle helps. Only other thing you can do is shim the axle up some so the ujoints are not that high of angle...

    One more thing when was the ujoints greased last?

    Does it do it when coming to a stop? anyway you can record this? I just want to eliminate that's it's the trans downshifting based on ur driving patterns.

    What about the center bearing in the drive shaft? If it hasnt been lower you might have problems there.

    Ujoints need to be greased every 5000 miles. If they run low they can cause all kinds of weird noises.

    If you had 4wd diff drop plus angle turn to keep angles on the ujoints minimum.

    That's the default behavior. I've never read of it being something that can be changed.

    I think 5th and 6th are the overdrive gears per manual. Default to 4th because of safe shift point?

    I was looking at limp mode and max speed. Ugh. Looks like you can get the 4.6 in a six speed gearbox or 5 ? Im guessing what ever the dealer orders it I guess.
