I had to look long and hard to find a low mile 99 with manual transfer case, even longer if you want a six speed also. I finally went with a auto tranny one I found. I prefer six speed myself and wife drives it fine, but every now and then I have to loan the truck out and the clutch takes a real beating. The auto will be easier for the non clutch guests. When this tranny needs rebuild I will spend the money for all the good stuff. When I do a brake job or check spindle bearings I will usually soak my manual hubs in a bath of AMSOIL ATF for about a half hour, drain and stick them back in. My last truck had 385,000 on it and factory hubs turned better than new.
