SurfnSnow X2 on what distortedtj said. a good set of sliders will actually save your tub. I've used mine as pivot points on rocks on the trail. I dented the sliders a bit but better them than the tub. Whatever sliders you get, get some skateboard grip tape, cut into 2" strips and put them on the steps.

distortedtj Welcome to the forum.

Body mounted sliders (good ones/not cheap crap)are indeed stronger than the ones that bolt to the frame.

As for the tranny....depends on your type of offroading // preference. works better for most.

mud...manual works better for most.

But in the end it is YOUR preference.
