inzgary How many times is this question going to be asked? At least we can all agree on driving Jeeps. Not much else though...

buckshot500 The question really is how well can someone drive a stick offroad.

It's different than driving on flat ground, but you'll get used to it after a while if you do it right.

I had an auto in my Ramcharger & it was easy to drive over stuff, but I like the idea of being in gear to slow my descents. An auto relies on the brakes only.

Also nice to be able to pull the coil wire & use the starter motor to crawl really tough rock spots. Can't do that with an auto.

motokeen I like both but on very uneven trails and hills a stick is a pain in the A$$. On the other hand Sticks hold up a little better. I guess if I had to ride stick it would be ok but I would add a hand throttle for those sticky situations.

The old 3spd auto tranny in YJs and TJs doesn´t have a breather tube. There´s only a little hole in the bell housing.
The new 4-spd tranny in 2003 (or 2004) to 2006 TJs has a breather tube that ends beside the battery. That should be high enough.

jwells36 I have had both in a TJ and i prefer the auto. Much smoother to drive on and off-road. It is much easier to crawl up on things with out having to worry about smoking your clutch.

x2...we had a big rain storm where we live about a year ago, and EVERYTHING was flooded...our main streets were rivers and since i live in the desert, it was a giant mud pit...a while after the storm, i started getting grinding in my tranny, took it to the shop and they drained the oil and said that there was water in the tranny, turns out my warranty didnt cover foreign elements, such as water but they were willing to pay half the cost of a junkyard motor

joemd60 Most of my vehicles have been standards, I do not like automatics.

Cons_Table it is all a matter of preference and what people feel more comfortable in, personally i like the standard tranny

nicolas-eric For off road use an auto tranny is the best option.
