    I had a reco auto in the GQ already that only lasted 3 years, the cost of another reco was to high and to be honest I much prefer driving manual off road. So we will see how it goes, at least with a manual box I will be able to strip and repair it myself

    Nice write up Paul,

    As a person who just swapped a manual gearbox for another manual gearbox, it's a big job, I could imagine the auto would be worse.

    At least like you had access to a gearbox jack, 4 post hoist etc. But still a big heavy bugger of a job.

    Enjoy the manual mate you'll never look back

    Getting the auto out was the easy bit, because there is no clutch assembly in the way! Me and the wife got the auto out in a morning, I reckon with a hoist and tranny jack an auto swap would be do-able in a day still not for the faint hearted though
