Hi, I hope I'm posting in the right place. So my manual transmission wrangler was parked. My kid nephew sat in it and was playing around, moving the gear shift into different gears without pressing the clutch, sort of like power shifting I guess. The engine was off and he was safe, everything was fine, but I was wondering if this will damage my transmission? I honestly didn't even know the gearshift would go into the gears without pressing the clutch. Maybe it didn't? Anyway, thanks for your thoughts in advance.

Not sure how you would power shift without power. Power shifting is done at wide open throttle. Speed shifting is blipping off the throttle and back on while feathering the clutch. This tranny won't withstand either very much. What this kid was doing, his arm would wear out before the tranny did.
