Ward, have you had any issues with the Aisin trans? I go back in forth between a manual and an auto in an overland rig. I intend to use either the 4500 or the 5500 and put a camper on the back and travel out of the country. My concern is being out in the boonies with an auto and having an electrical issue stop my forward progress. I've read on line about a dead-pedal issue with the Aisin...have you experienced this? Appreciate any thought you might have....or anyone else, for that matter.
