Looking to buy a jeep

Hey guys im new here and i am looking to buy a jeep. My dad wants me to get an auto because he says the clutch is gonna suck in a manual, but im not worried about it. Can anyone compare and contrast the pros and cons of each kind of trans for me please? Thanks- Dom

Welcome to WF!

Post your question here: JK Jeep Wrangler Forum (or in the section appropriate to the YM Jeep you're looking at). This is just where we greet new members. Be aware, a thread on manual vs auto will have a lot of, let's say, very subjective content. Buy what you think you'll be happiest with.

Good info from kbwwolf. I your budget is lower, you may want to look at earlier models like the YJ (85-96) or TJ (97-06)
