    08' 2nd gen 4x4: Is it dueable to swop out a manual transmission to an automatic tranny, with $ not an issue? parts i probably have to purchase from bone yard are auto transmission, some console parts. then theres the issue with the emergency pedal brake vs. the pull emergency brake. electrical harness issues? speedometer showcase has park, r, n,d, etc.

    It would most likely be easier and less problem-prone to just trade your truck for an automatic.

    humans can't shift faster than automatic.

    I've done an auto to manual swap in my old car (95 240sx) and it was somewhat easy because going to a manual didn't require any wiring to operate (but getting the pedal sensors and speed sensors hooked up was a good idea), but an auto...no way. Too much wiring that would have to be done to get it to operate.

    On a 240sx it made sense because the swap was fairly easy and manual 240s were few and far between. On a tacoma I don't see any point...there's tons of automatic tacomas and the swap would be very expensive and time consuming

    Yes an auto shifts faster, but it's a softer shift and all the while it's eating up more power in efficiency.
