Its a plus in that i can get one vs not getting one, if your married you understand all to well

Also it will get her interested more if she can try, it cool having a wife that willing to do things you like.

I have a 6 speed. The hydraulic clutch these new trucks have is a gift from god when stuck in traffic or feathering the clutch on a hill. Very smooth shifting. I love the feel of it. It also keeps the girl away from the jeep because she won't drive a standard.

Stick is not necessarily better then Auto but everyone needs to learn how to drive one because they are not going to go away.

With a manual you can push in the clutch and freewheel back if your front end starts to rise, an auto will resist this.

Another would be a fluid leak way out in the boonies. You lose gear lube in a stick and you can still limp out slowly. You lose fluid in an auto you don't go anywhere.

All things considered, I'd still opt for an auto. I drive a 10 speed manual for work, I'm sick of shifting.

thats sucks,i have rolled but have never flipped like thatneo
