    Is there a reason why you like the messed up roads.

    Does it keep us stads japies away?

    Do you feel like your 4x4 worked when it rides on a broken tar road?

    Does it stop the poachers?

    I'd say the only thing missing on the auto is low-range.

    Why not add a low range to the auto in stead of bringing out a manual.
