Go with a 5spd, you'll kick yourself in the ass later. Autos are boring and gay. Those motors run forever though it seems with proper maintence.

I had an auto and wished it was a stick.
Lift the carpet in the back seat and check the floor for rust.

get an auto and then put in the 513s from the standard and lockers and you will have a cheap buggy that will be really capeable.
My brother sidekick is an auto and it is way better then the stick of road or in town stuff , crawling etc .
If it is highway alot then the stick would probably be a better choice as the auto does rev a bit even if it is the stock gears.

If i could find an auto for cheap i would snap it up.

My brother paid $600 for his 93 (rust free runs great) and all it needed was a bit of reading and a $35 part and it was golden . so deals are out there

Depending on where the Sidekick has been living for the last 20 years...

Rust... hiding in rocker panels, wheel wells, door frames,
basic leaks from seals and stuff

and make sure 4x4 works... free wheeling hubs can gum up and stick if
the kick was only used for mall crawling...

They are fun little trucks !
