    I have been thinking I need a in line 6 with a 5 speed. does anyone think any V8 would be better? for the ease of employees driving the truck i might think auto might be the way to go.

    thanks for replys

    Yeah, don't want them to destroy your clutch in a week. Unless they know how do drive a manual, I would go with an auto.

    Go auto with a V8. I would think about a 3/4 ton if its for a daily crew rig!!
