What is wrong with your current 32RH auto transmission?

The cost to convert to a 5-speed including all the parts would cost enough that you wouldn't see a return on the investment for many years. Due to the lack of return on the $$$ it would cost, I sure wouldn't do a conversion for the modest mpg improvement it would result in.

Heck I converted FROM a 5-speed to the same transmission you have five years ago, it works much better for offroading on tougher trails.

I'm with Jerry. There have been many times while in the woods or on the rocks that I wish I had an auto or a slower t-case.
