    I prefer an auto for a stop and go DD, but a stick for towing. It all depends on what your preference is. When I get a tow rig, it will have a stick in it.

    The 465/205 is mainly limited on hills where the gear splits are too far apart... The TH400 robs power, but if your motor is built good you should not notice. The 700R4 will never hold up well with any heavy towing, but would work great in a daily driver with light towing.
