Well, I'm sure starting in 2nd will buff the friction plates of your clutch to a nice glazed shiney polish, eventually ... if you're into that sort of thing.
My truck has the 4.0 with a 4.10 LS diff. It's only in 1st for about 10', until it gets rolling, and then I shift to 2nd. Nice and smoove. What's hard about that? I suppose I *could* start in 2nd, or even 3rd -- but I'd rather not. Tires are easier to replace than a clutch. And I want my clutch and connecting rod bearings to last a long time, so I try not to be mean to them.
If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.
