Drive line ?

When I'm in 4 low or 2 low everything seems to work just fine. When I go to 4 hi it takes a good bit gas to get my jeep moving. It kinda feels like the brakes are on. I can't get up to speed and after a mile down the road my jeep is over heating, any ideas? I can go 4 wheeling all day and as long as all of the trail are close together I have no issues at all, but when we go from trail head to trail head and have to run in hi gear I have problems.

My specs:
Ramjet 350
TCI T350, with reverse manual valve body
4.3 Atlas

Should I add a little more tranny fluid and see if that makes a difference?
I guess you could...

But it won't.

I would check to see if a caliper is stuck. :shit:
That too... Just this past weekend, I rode in Tracy city, probably drove 10 miles total on the road, and several in our group had stuck or dragging brakes.

Another question does it act the same in 2hi? You didn't mention it in op.
Sorry - this is when it happens.

Sounds like I should check the rear brakes.

How's your timing, have you checked it to make sure it hasn't moved, that could make it a turd when in higher gear, but less noticeable while in low gear, would also let the cylinder temp increase causing some heat issues. Just a thought.
