Can you tell me what the pros and cons of the knob transfer case shifter vs. the stick transfer case shifter?

I am considering a new purchase and am leaning towards the stick. Thanks

I suppose for pros, knob is easier to operate like new models these days. Cons...more electrical, so when it comes to troubleshooting, it might be difficult. Of course, who knows when that becomes an issue, if it ever does.

Lever type pros...more mechanical, so less electronics to a degree. Feels awesome to operate.

I thought when you mentioned 'stick' I thought manual trans was making a comeback, but alas, it is not. No thanks Toyota. I'll keep mine with a real stick.
