I had a wise old trucker tell me to stop shifting down because brakes cost a lot less to repair than a transmission. Downshifting puts a lot of stress on the bearings because they are built with most of the strength for pulling. I believed him only after I had to put new bearings and a few gears in my Ford transmission. But that was the last transmissionI had to repair.

I’m not sure about the fragile manual trans you guys are running but I’ve always got a LOT mileage out of my clutches.
This goes doubly for my motorcycle trans/clutches. And I tend to be tough on them (I don’t abuse them mind you) but I’ve never been afraid to dump clutches (burn outs), wheelies, down shifting to hit proper speeds for an apex, etc.
Like I said- whatever floats your boat.

offroad you ride the brakes going down hilly trails you can down shift a auto . I think its more fun to engine brake meaning down shift your manual to slow down. auto trans add 1 or 2 grand to the price new. manuals you can push start or park on a hill facing down the hill. manuals are ezer and cheaper to fix.

Electronic Fuel injection will NOT push start with a dead battery. You can push start it with a bad starter, but not a dead battery.

I agree with "got it at last" I have the 89 yj 5speed ...I love driving it but I also love the fact that nobody else can ask to drive it because they don't know how too 😂 that was your first mistake , teaching them to drive it 😉 j/s Lol

OK so 40 Posts later I have this thread boiled down to....

A. 5 spds should only be used in 87-90 YJ's with Carbs so they can be bump started
B. Autos should only be used in 91-95 YJ's with Fuel Injection because they can't be bump started
C. Everyone has really good Pro's and Con's for both Tranny's.

D. Everyone should have one of each so they can enjoy the best of both sides

Semantics.
In my book a weak battery= a dead battery. Either way, it’s not starting on it’s own.
And plenty of heeps came with carbs. There’s a carb kit for every engine, even an LS. Carburetors are not extinct.

But on topic;
It seems to me this thread has debased into an actual debate of manual vs auto. But the thread is clearly labeled in all caps as fun.
Like my orig post it was a joke (not necessarily a good one ) but a joke nonetheless.
Bottom line- picking a trans is like a color- go with what ya like. End of the day they both have drawbacks & benefits.

That's why I'm looking for a really NICE 94-95 with a 4.0 AX-15, external slave with good manifold, and lots of electrical crap to learn how to work on. Not because I don't like automatics, My 1911's and Glock's are proof of that. I just like having to use my free hand to shift rather than talk on the phone or reply to a text while I'm Driving....LMAO...

1911s are the best in the world imo. Though I did have a steyr & a Springfield XD for a long time that I REALLY enjoyed!

I finally got it put together this past weekend and took it out to see what I thought. 4Low and 1-2nd gear and it handled most everything without any shifting problems. I wanted the stick shift and Im glad I went with it. Only once or twice did I lug down the motor on steep climbs but she never died!
