Do you drive an auto or a manual transmission?

lets do another one...

so this one is about what you actually have, lets do one about what you would really like to have as well. I know that I would sure like to have a 6-speed, but only have an auto ...

How can I really complain though, when I am lucky enough just to have one at all!!!

for me the torque shift was the inly way to go. mileage is the same. controll is dang close and ease of use /maint. is much better

In a factory truck or one with just a few mods like I have now i'd like a manual. But if after doing a lot of research there's some really good solid automatic trannies out there. I would put one in if I was going to throw some serious power down and hit the drag strip.

Manual

It took me 2 years to talk the owner into selling. Gotta have the manual.
