Anyone who really wheels knows that automatics are superior to manuals. I suppose if I had a sports car I would want a manual, but never on a trail rig.

And yes, I can drive a manual, and no that doesn't make me any more of a man. You guys must have a shaft complex or something. I think you just like gripping your fist around a shaft.

I liked my autos back when I had V8s. I just prefer the manual with the 4.0. Gives more control over gearing/ power. I will be getting an auto in the next rig, but it will be V8 powered.


BTW nice find
