Not wanting to discourage you any but the 2.5 with an auto was a dog.
It can be done they had a few come from the factory that way.

Make sure it has 5:88 gears to get out of an inclined parking lot.

I'm already running 5.89's w/ 39.5 Iroks. My rig does very well on any trail I have ran, the problem is in a really technical big rock climbs I don't have the control I like. If I don't go the auto route I may just go with a 4:1 or a Klune and call it a day, it would have such a low crawl that it would'nt matter.

Just out of curiosty, is there no auto tranny that can work behind the 2.5? I like my 5 speed, but I always wondered if anyone ever found a set-up that worked with this motor.

With the 2.5 you would have no problem with a Klune V box, move the engine forward.
