    Love my manual transmission offroad. 1st gear + 4LO = awesome for ascending & descending steep hills.

    It's also nice to be able to crawl down a steep hill in 1st gear without having to touch the brakes.

    My throwout bearing squeaks but I think that was standard equipment from the factory.

    I typically start off in 2nd gear in 4LO if its not too steep.

    I love mine, made a recent trip to the outer banks which has many of sand trails and beaches to drive on, never had to air down, clutch makes hills easier I think, and helps avoiding getting stuck.
    Deep sand? Uphill? 4 lo, 2nd or 3rd gear, no probs

    manuals are the only way to go. I love mine. I've been through Moab a couple times with it and 4lo will crawl through anything. the short throw shift was worth it for off roading too.

    Mine does great. I did burn it a little in some sand but that was my fault. I dont get into sand that much.

    If I'm doing anything solo or where moving fast isn't a neccessity I'll be in 4-LO. 33s plus weight just makes things sluggish...gears are definitely on the short list right now.

    I love mine, I just did a new clutch not too long ago after 77,000 miles.

    I haven't really had any problems. I do have a loud ass bearing...Input shaft bearing I am suspecting. Not really a problem other than I am going to have to drop the tranny sometime and fix it.

    I do want a re-gear soon, the trucks getting slower and slower
