    Keep the auto, if you plan on doing any crawling and like to do it with ease, the auto will be much more enjoyable. For a short time, I thought about swapping my 400 for a 465, but quickly came to my senses. :thumb:

    Wow man! thems fightin words around here! J/k :D
    Some of us live and die by the 465, way more dependable then that slush box. Yeah I know it's easier without that extra pedal, but direct drive kicks ass!

    Weird, I just found one of these trucks with a plow for $750. I'm not a fan of GM diesels, and tried to get it without the motor, but didn't want to tear it apart. Figure wait a week or so, he will come down on his price. But back to the question, I have only ever had 1 standard truck, and that was a junk 3 speed. When/if I ever get the 400/SM465 in my suburban, I will let you know how it is. But I can't wait to get it done, need to get off my lazy a$$ and swap it!!!!
