Most our work rigs are auto, in the end, as much as I find manual fun, work isn't the best place for them.

Is anything really serious on TW, when it comes down to it? Lol, that's why I love this site, people here can crack and take jokes. Other forums I am on are just too serious, crack a joke and you risk being banned sometimes.

Automatic for a truck that I plan on taking off-road. It's just easier to Off-Road in an automatic than in a manual.


I have never had an automatic until this truck. I find it very boring on my daily commutes but I love it when i'm off road.

I'm looking into a beater miata or something as a daily haha.

I like the challenge of having to negotiate balance/torque/momentom with some good gas/chutch work/skills.….

Yeah at first I felt the same way. I had a manual taco a few years back that I did it with. I was pretty good with it if I do say so myself, but when I got into some unexpectedly difficult and dangerous situations sometimes it would be more difficult than necessary.

I'd just rather have that little extra bit of help when off-roading JUST IN CASE!

It lets me focus on the task at hand a little more carefully when I don't have to worry about clutching.

Having a manual would be very annoying for me right now! I drive a mile a day with a top speed of 30, and I stop 8 times in that mile!
