    Previous owner used to haul heavy loads, so he put an AAL on it and TRD front suspension with a lift and custom rear suspension for added weight capacity. I recently installed a tow package (Curt with lifetime warranty) So i will definitely see what this thing can handle as far as weight goes.
    Women can do pretty much the same thing men can do, but for me, IMO when a woman drives a manual (I won't say stick cause that can go 2 ways) I think its an attractive trait. It means they weren't afraid to learn it. I know countless women who don't even bother trying because they're afraid they can't. Its even better when they prefer a manual trans! What's your opinion?

    They have to be good at operating sticks or I won't date them.

    It's not so much that being able to drive a stick is attractive, it's that being too stupid or lazy to drive stick is unattractive.

    Used to. Not anymore. Taught my ex how to drive manual. Almost ran me over with my own car. Now if she can ride a motorcycle. Then I'm all in for that.

    Nailed it. You're going to have to put up with female BS anyway, and her being able to drive a stick may indicate that you'll have to put up with less BS in the grander scheme.

    No, it doesn't matter what she drives in bed, and if she ever starts shifting my junk like she's moving through the gears, well hell, I wouldn't even know what to think

    Make car noises. Then start motor boating. And end with the helicopter.

    I dont understand why people want to drive manuals. Its old technology. I dont want to go out and wind up my engine in order to start it, then light up the gas head lamps. Why the fuck would I want to change gears?

    Because machinery and control. You silly little girl. The roads would be safer if automatics were abolished. Focus.

    My girlfriend shifted my junk once and did the car noises herself. Then had me teach her which gears were where.
