the following has not been tested but try...
Range("d" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Formula = "=sum(d2:" & Range("d" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Range & ")"

BigWill, I took a second look at your code and I'm having trouble understanding what you're trying to accomplish.

Are you trying to put your sum formula in every used cell in column D? Or are you simply summing the values in column D?

Sub possibleSolution()

    'The following will put your sum formula in the next available cell in column D.

    'declare a string variable to hold your formula
    Dim formulaString As String
    
    'populate formulaString with formula
    formulaString = "=sum(d2:d" & Range("d" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row - 1 & ")"
    Debug.Print Now & formulaString
    
    'put the formula in the next available cell in column d
    Range("d" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Formula = formulaString
    
End Sub
