My 03 jeep has a 4 Spd auto trans. Problem just started yesterday has a hard downshift from 3 to 2. But if I turn overdrive off it doesn't have this issue

Do you
have the same problem?

Sounds like a valave body issue or accumulator proble. Take it to A trans shop and let them drive it and give you a bid. It does not sound serious but you wont know till someone feels it and checks it out.

The valve body would it need to be cleaned or what could I do to save me some cash

Hard to say until you have a guy drive it that does transmissions all day long.

What ended up being the solution to your trans downshift problem, I have the exact same problem now with my 2003 wrangler.
I'm hoping its a switch or solenoid pack
