Haven't felt it yet, guess I don't let the tank get that low.

GF's '14 Sport with 8-speed and 32 gallon tank has no issues on 2-1 downshift.

Glad I read this post... I just took possession of a 2014 ram sport yesterday. I feel the thump as I'm slowing down... Just a second or two before I come to a complete stop. I was planning to go to the dealer tomorrow but I see at this is not an isolated problem.

I was just mentioning to my wife the other day that my truck is the smoothest shifting vehicle I have ever driven.
Having said that, I just got out of a BMW X5 with a 6 speed ZF transmission that had a VERY harsh 2-1 shift so I know what some of the guys on here are experiencing. It's not fun. My guess is that this is strictly a software issue and ZF/Ram will eventually figure it out and put out a software update.

Out of curiosity, how many miles do those with this 2-1 "bump" have on their trucks?

About 400km... So, like 250 miles. Are you thinking it is something that happens early on and kind of fades away after a break-in period?

Bought it with 25 miles - very harsh downshifts
750 miles - significant improvement, but still a harsh 2-1 bump
1500 miles - 2-1 bump smooths out, still noticeable
1800 miles - 3rd or 4th gear smooths out - less drag when coasting to a stop, still a mild 2-1 bump

3.92 axle - mostly city driving
