I prefer manual overall but not worrying about a clutch would be better in the dirt.

And hills. I thought about this part of off road, I think it'll take some practice but I don't see why I could do it

Once you get decent gears you won't have to worry about that either.

With the 241 you can basically just dump the clutch and it'll power on up those "hills" you speak of.

I like my auto, but sometimes I wish I had a manual.

I don't even own a jeep anymore

Remember when we went wheeling and my TJ was still stock, remember how much better my Jeep performed than yours even with stock suspension and tiny all terrains simply because I had a good gear ratio for my tire size? Now imagine if I had a 241 in it like Moose.

Right, but you didn't have a stock auto there to compare to.

I used to have a 3 spd auto. My point is that using the "no fumbling with a clutch" excuse against a manual doesn't workif you actually have good gears.

I know. I'm not at all saying a properly set up manual isn't good. It's great.
