|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.|

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.
Rock...auto works better for most.
mud...manual works better for most.
But in the end it is YOUR preference.
