i am having the same problem and had it before in my 1996 grand Cherokee and i traded it in on a 2004 grand Cherokee and the same thing is happing. i spent like 2000 dollors on different macanics and no one fixed it.

There is a solenoid located above the transmission pan that controls the down shifting. To have this replaced at a shop it will cost about $300.

If it a manual transmission it could be fluid level/needs changing, shifting fork/linkage or syncro issues. If it is an automatic, the fluid level/condition can affect shifting, also if the valves in the valve body are sticking. The transmission can also just need rebuilding, clutches are worn.
