      thatโ€™s up to your driving skills and roads you often drive . in my opinion a modern automatic car is better than a manual one and a manual car is much better an old automatic one

      wading preparations:
      -ease your fan belt as to not drive it's blades into the radiator when it hits water you may also cover the grid to avoid mud being pushed in the radiator
      -plug the clutch housing drain (it doesn't pater if you con't touch your pedal in water if dirty water enter the housing it's get to the disc)
      -plug or schnorkel all gearbox transfer box and axle breather water getting in those is not to good
      8 perfectionists will also protect their batteries if these are not maintenance free airtight batteries (not sure if even those are free of vents)

      in mud revving up when you spin just make you loose traction the bigger is your spin percentage the lower is your grip, tires lose grip starting 20 ish percent of wheel-spin past that point you're just digging yourself down. instead you have to match your rev with your actual speed keeping the grip and preserving your momentum.

      Semi auto would be best transmission. Well a transmission that you can switch from auto to a sequential system, like in ford falcons for example.

      Ranger/ BT50 since 2012, etc etc. Most modern 4wd autos have sequential mode at the flick of a wrist. It's just so easy!

      yer you forgot with Autos some modern ones can have down hill control (other than down hill assist using the traction control and brakes) with a manual control lockup torque convertor and they can be set to lock up in 1st gear so same as a manual for engine braking, But i'm with you Autos make better offroad boxes but i still prefer a manual they are just more fun and require more of you skill and input.

      I live in N.A. and manual shift is difficult to find unless you get economy car. I prefer manual but haven't had one for 7 years.

      Y'all act like being able to operate a stick shift makes you some sort of automobile rocket doctor. Anyone can learn. It's not a big deal. Autos are awesome. I learned to drive a stick in a 1970 Volkswagen Bus, leaving the parking lot of a hardware store. With two compressed disks, I now LOVE my auto and will never go back. Much less pressure on your spine, not using a clutch. Much nicer in traffic, also.

      How about a manual transmission with a lockable torque converter? That would be the best of both worlds.

      Overtaking a car - manual still the best. You don't rely on the matic where in manual you can prepare the torque and the speed.

      Formula 1 cars use a automatic. Why? Because they are now better.

      Had an '05 TJ Rocky Mtn manual and now have an auto '08 JK X. Pros & cons with each. Overall my '08 JK X has been the much better Jeep. In fact, this 2 door JK is by far the best vehicle I've owned.

      I have an idea about clutch in manual gear. when you driving and press break pedal and if the car stopped engine will be automatically off. if you don't press clutch pedal or gear in neutral. To stop this connect break pedal with clutch by pressure value when break pedal pressed it pushes the clutch before the car stopped because of pressure value. Then manual gear will be more preferred
