There have been many questions asked about impressions of the manual transmission from KOH, with a few answers scattered throughout the rest of the posts, so I thought it would be useful to have a master thread about them as well.
@67BroncoG1, @broncosor, @FTBronco9, and anyone else who may have ridden in one do you have anything juicy to tell us? I know you didn't get to drive it but any general impressions and/or solid answers you got from the drivers or reps there would be very helpful.
Thank you all 🙏

@Ryno do you have anything else to add that wasn't already said on your own thread? Was it a simple locking ring pull-up to move over to R/C? Did the driver say anything about shifting in and out of C or ever upshift out of C into 1st on the move?

This is my sole decision point now. Manual/2.3 vs Auto/2.7. Very interested in feedback here.

I don't mean to rip on another fellow Bronco enthusiast, but asking if it stalls if you stop on crawler gear without depressing the clutch is out there :sneaky:

P.S

I dont know but I have hopes for this transmission in the future. They say its scaleable to HD specs and I hope the aftermarket work with that.

I was going to comment on that post but figured that no good could come of it.

Im getting a Black Diamond so it doesn't apply to me but a friend was wondering if you can get the adaptive cruise control with the 7-spd? I haven't paid attention to if this was discussed in the past because I not going to get it myself. (sorry if it has gone over a million times)

‘22, what more do you need?
Are they going to lower the gearing to 4.88 or 5.13 to account for the differences in tire diameter between the 33's and the '35's in the Badlands and match that gearing improvement on the Base and BD? Is it going to be available in December or is it another delayed item? Internal transmission or clutch upgrades for the added load, stuff like that. Hard to know if waiting (for who knows how long) is worth doing.
