Ok, so someone offered me an even up trade their 93 4door eddie bauer for my 92 sport and the eddie is fine he said he had rebuilt the tranny, and I want a 4door but dont care for automatics but like the eddiebauer editions, so my question is, should I go for this deal and later change it to a manual or is that more hassle than its worth or what? Thanks and hope to hear your responses ;)

first you need to compare condition and mileage difference.

if you like the manual transmission then i would say stick with whatever you have.

if you don't really care about it and he has receipts from the transmission rebuild and everything(engine, 4x4 etc) works fine then i will go for it.

It can be a 'real pain in the ass' to change to manual tranny from a automatic.....if you really don't like automatics , tell him NO WAY!, simple as that.

Lol, alright then guess i'll just try sellin it straight out.
