I do have to say that on the mild stuff the auto is pretty nice. Was actually kind of a relaxing ride, specially on the twisty's.
But, when we got into some pretty heavy stuff, the infamous slushbox reared it's ugly head, the tranny slipped way too much to actually make it up serious obstacles, and the transfere clutch for the rear output slipped pretty bad too, couple of times I was only spinnin one front tire. Good thing I got a 5spd laying here waiting to go in there. Sure will be nice when I can put all that power to the ground.
On a side note, it's been a long time since I've wheeled a stock Roo, and it sure is a completely different character than the monster that is the 82!!
So, in short, if you've got an auto in your rig, and want to really wheel it, swap it out for a manual, you'll have a much better time. Nothing sux more than getting stuck on some piddly little obstacle!

For not having a low range, the 4eat in my turbowagon didnt do too bad. Comparing it to a manual in high range, I was probably able to do hills that would have been a serious pain otherwise. If the rear output could be locked up and a tcase put in there, it would make a good wheeler.
