Welcome aboard.
Good choice on the 6 speed, I love mine.
I know this might make the AT guys mad but i drove a king cab and crew cab in AT and the tranny seemed very unresponsive to me. ( not to say they are bad trannys) I had to order it in because nissan decided that the midwest doesn't like manuals and did not put one within 500 miles of kansas city. waited a week for it to be trucked in from colorado. so far it has been worth the wait!

Yeah I called 4 Nissan dealerships and found out there were only 5 used 4x4 Nissan Frontiers (at least king cabs) at dealerships on the east coast with a MT. And luckily a dealership 30 miles away from me had one :fantastic:

Auto trannys do their job and that's basically it. They'll never feel as responsive or give you the control of your ride like a 6MT will. I bought a truck that my wife will drive on occasion so it had to be an AT, otherwise I think me and most hardcore truck people prefer a MT.

Welcome to the club and enjoy your ride.

If mine wasn't a daily commuter, I would have gone with MT as well. I take it to work every day and do traffic and I didn't want to deal with it. If it was a dedicated off-roader or hunting/fishing truck, MT for sure. Plus we don't get any sort of snow down here and my part of Texas is totally flat.

Welcome to the forum. The six speed is a pleasure to drive. You made a good choice.
