Not many people "properly equip" their DD with such modifications. :tonka:
I'll take a manual trans over a stock oem auto anyday.

I'll take a pair of hiking boots over a stock ford auto anyday (except for the C6 and Porqshift)

Many times I've wished my TJ was an auto instead of a AX-15.

Especially on hills.

we're in the WHEELING RIG section, not DD. If your DD is also your wheeling rig, thats your problem.
