Personal preference... I love my auto for wheeling but long trips on the highway really eat into the gas with no overdrive. Also, as far as the braking goes... when it comes to descending long grades you can still downshift an auto. I know I do on those long steep grades. Also, offroad I put it in 4 low and hardly ever need to hit the brakes.
