Future jeep owner questions

Future owner of a jeep rubicon x here (hopfully), and had some general questions to ask here, to see others opinions.

1. What is the rational for owners getting an automatic over the six speed in a rubicon? Other than for ease of use, is there any other benefit?

With the rubicon x and a good winch kit, how much could a rubicon x safely winch?

Is the new pentistar motor more torquey, or does it lag a little? How tough is the tranny?

Is the rubicon full time 4x4, or can it go into 4x2 mode?

And can headers and a borla kit be added to increase mpg?

Oh, yea, and do chicks dig jeeps? lol just j/k on that one

Sorry for all the newbie questions. Looking forward to the comments.

It is a part time 4wd. You will be in 2wd(rwd) most of the time.

So the only time it is in full time 4wd is when you lock both the differentials?

the only reason i can think of for getting a auto over a stick would be yes, the ease of opperation and not having to worry about it. I've also heard that autos are a little easier to handle off roading. some like them cause you don't have to worry about bothering with the clutch and moving three pedals with two feet verses the ease of keeping your left foot on the brake. I have a stick myself but have not gotten into real heavy offroading where that would come into play.

I guess what I'm trying to say is "personal preference."
