Welcome Don. yes i wouldnt recommed the auto eather it hates bigger tires. just one FYI on the manuals around 50000-70000 the clutch slave cylinder goes out. it sucks cause its inside the trans might as well put a clutch in while your in there. thats the only bad thing about it... cheap to fix the part is if you know how to work on vehicals

Yep.
Just replaced that. . . Pain in butt, but; not too bad.
55K miles.

I still wouldn't get anything but a manual, but; that is just my opinion.

Enjoy!
