    Manual tranny! fun to drive, if you plan on putting larger tires on your truck manual trannys are a bit more torqy. I think the auto's are gutless

    Manual transmission!! Shifting never gets old for me and I can drive it like I stole it if the need arises. Also manual 5 speed gets slightly better Mpg's compared to the 4 speed automatic. The 5 lug truly is the meat an potatoes no frills workhorse regardless of transmission.
