I think this guy wanted factual information, statistics, or proof NOT someones opinion because thats what they have in their truck and it lasted 100,000 miles... This isn't a black and white discussion. Its preference. The only thing we could really, honestly provide him with is if he wants to drive lazy, get an auto. If he wants to tow, he should probably get an auto if the loads heavy. If he wants to put big whp #s down, he should get a stick. If he wants to lay down times at the track, he should get a stick. I think his question is too broad to be answered, but I don't think anyone should post all this stuff and back it up so willingly as factual evidence when its still just their opinion/preference...
You don't need to look it up, maybe he does. I don't care if you know what every bearing does in the TC, I could give a crap less. Ooh, you are so smart, Mr. Napeolian! Kudo's. It was merely an example that you took literal. Whatever. We all know, for the most part of you are even the LEAST bit educated about automotive-related subjects, that automatic transmissions provide better towing capabilities, and that manuals do not. Sure, you can tow with a stick -- but not as well, or as easy, or without causing more wear and tear for the same operation.
