the autos are pretty good if you dont run a tuner with alot more power than stock. i got 145k on my 08 with no troubles.

besides the clutch and under powered motor do you think in the long haul it would be better than buying and auto.. i've had to get a couple autos rebulit in my newer vehicles and they coast a small fortune.. i'd imagin throwing a HD clutch in would be alot cheaper than rebuilidg an auto trns... the only thing is i sometimes have a lot of diff people driving my truck it is going to be a "work" truck and an auto is alot easier for guys to just get in and go Rather than burn the $**t out of my clutch!...

when you have to repair, the clutch would be cheaper
