i beg to differ unless your in some real mountanous terrain, you can put anyone in an auto. out of the 12 guys we currently have, im the only one who can drive stick... we have a tandem mack with allison and the truck is great. its offroad probably about 30% of the time and when it gets stuck we need a d6 to pull it out, nothing that anything with a standard trans would have been able to get out of..
