Sled pulling tranny?

So After going to a local pull, I Think I've decided I want to join in on the fun. Now what I want to Know is what do you prefer, A Manual or an Auto tranny.

I was thinking a standard and a big clutch would be the better option, But Just wanted to here what you guys had to say.

Also How long would you give my dana 50? I already broke it once pulling stumps

10/97 F-250, 180k on the clock, 4.10 gears, Autometer gauges,DIY intake, 3.5" down pipe to 4" straight , ATS 6 position chip, 37" BFG Baja T/A's and 24 bolt Hummer H1 wheels. 1 ton axles and custom suspension.

I always thought a manual with a heavy clutch is the best.

alot of guys like sticks but i am a fan of a well built auto
but i like racing and pulling, a stick may be a lil better at pulling but sucks racing, but a propaly built auto can pull with the best of em

Either one is competitive.

For a Powerstroke I suggest a well built auto.

How many times did you beat ference's auto thier House, it is what you like best and how you drive it.

Hang some weight on that 50 put good u joints in it and you will be suprised at how long it will last. Johnboy pulled for several years with twins and ofer 500 hp with no major carnage.
