Depends on the terrain, but when you have to bump an obstacle to get up, Auto's seem to accelerate better.

I have actually done or wheeled both and it really depends on the terrian, but I still vote for the manual tranny why because its what I have been driving for the better part of ten years.

my last 2 EB's have had C4 auto's....rebuilt & beefed up a bit....and I've had good luck. My dream Bronco has a nice, tasty overdrive preferrably a manual so my wife never wants to "borrow the truck real quick" again.
