5 Speed Trans.

Question..have 2000 Sahara w/ 5 spd. When approaching stop, is it okay to go to neutral and brake, or when stopped at signal should I stay in neutral and brake, or engage 1st gear and brake. Which is best for clutch? Thanks for help, I am new to the 5 spd.

On top of his question, is rev matching/not using clutch good for these transmissions?

I stopped "rev matching" when I was 18 which is just making for added wear to everything. After coming to a stop light, I normally shift into 1st gear and keep the clutch pedal down which is not hard on the clutch disk at all. That spins the throwout bearing but I figure that's what it's for. Only if it's a really long signal will I shift into neutral and let up off the clutch pedal just to give my leg a rest.

Good to know.

I drive a Coca Cola truck and most of our fleet are manuals and I almost never use the clutch, this habit carries on in my personal rig.
