You're running a bigger engine aren't you? In a hot and dusty environment. I would think long and hard about doing this as the auto is only just upto a standard Jimny in a temperate environment. If you're determined then add as much cooling as you can to the box, but really I would stop with the manual.

Same thing there then. Even with the alteration to the transfer box it's still asking an awful lot of an automatic box and it will generate a noticeable amount more heat which will need dissipating. Also the auto ratios are going to need compensating for with either the transfer box or differentials. Basically it's a lot of work. If the car were unmodified it would be simpler to sell it to buy a factory auto. With modifications that stands but more so. In the end it's your car and your choice but I would look at a manual and a decent clutch.

When I need a new clutch it will be an exedy probably the heavy duty safari one. They weight up the pedal nicely apparently and are able to handle a decent hike in power or some incorrect gearing to a point.
