    I would hope so since it's a stick shift. Since it's a manual, if the shift strategy sucks you need only look in the mirror to identify the issue.

    Mine's the same way when you put it into Toad Hall. Like a totally different truck. In its regular setting on the highway you can set the cruise control, then be going up a long slope and it will hold 6th until you've dropped to 3-4mph under what the cruise is set at before it downshifts, then it'll roar back up to speed and shift back into 6th. In T/H it'll downshift as soon as you hit the grade and hold 5th until the ground levels out. Much calmer.

    That's one of the features I miss about the F150; even though it was a dinky motor that 2.7 Ecoboost made tons of torque just off of idle, so it never needed to downshift on a grade on the highway. Even though the Ram makes more power, it's hauling a heavier truck and it's a NA motor so it shifts more.

    @morri89 btw not dumping on the SUV. We have one. The thing kicks ass. In sport mode the thing absolutely hauls ass. I've burried the thing and the traction control does an amazing job . It's rides very smooth. We went up in size and tossed teragrapplers on there ( completely her choice ) and the cabin is still dead silent with no mpg loss. We are hoping to dodge the Gremlins as well. My biggest complaint is the rear wiper is a bitch to change for some reason.

    And turn eco mode off as soon as your step in the truck. It's pointless

    Never thought you were dumping on it :cheers:

    She had a 2014 base elantra that was a pretty boring car. She wanted something more fun and liked the way the Compass felt more than the Rav4. If the tranny grenades we'll deal with it then, not too worried about it now. Also a reason why we opted for the extended 10 year 75k mile warranty.

    Can’t wait! Probably going to spend one day each at Wildcat, Loon, and Cannon; trying to figure out which to hit first.

    Still have yet to ride wildcat. I camped/hiked/skied tuckerman ravine a few years back and wildcat looked pretty nice from tuckerman.

    My question for the day is this.

    Has anyone ever considered removing the bedliner on their taco to inspect it, and to clean it, maybe hit the bed with the wax before reinstalling it?

    Thoughts?
