    i like manuals for rocks because u can feather the clutch and have alot more feel . mud i would say autos cuz u can still lock it in a gear and no clutch to pack up or get wet down the road autos are nice thought

    Old thread I know but i'm new here so it's new to me. Anyway I prefer manual but auto is easier. I don't like having to ride the brake comming down a hill Probably my main reason. But also like that I take my foot off the clutch it will crawl or move as fast as the lowest speed the gear you are in allows. I also feel I have more control of power output by feathering the clutch and go pedal. Now I know alot of you who like the automatics say oh I just put in 1st gear and it stays there I have never ever seen that happen. But in all fairness newest I have owned is an 04 (and wifes car is an 06 comming down mt washington auto road) they both would go to higher gear. But maybe in last few years they have gotten better.

    I put my XJ in 1st and it will not go out of 1st unless I tell it to. :Spanking:

    I like Auto for off road and stick for on road.

    :PCpunch:

    Some reasons why I think this way.
    easier to just hold brake on a steep hill and then hit gas and go and not worry about rolling backwards at all.
    don't have to heat your clutch up/ smoke it up/ burn it out trying to crawl really slow with it. (if it is not geared real low and just a stock setup on a lifted rig)
    With an Auto you just set it and forget it.
    just my opinion
