Sell it or Keep it?

95 reg cab, South bend clutch, gauges, AFE Stg2, 4" Straight pipe, Electric fuel system, Stg1 Injectors, Terminator Big Oil, HPX line, Gutted EBV, Wildman 4 pos Chip.
4" Lift, on new 35in tires with 18X10 black renegades. Flush mount tool box, protech head ache rack, tow hitch, and in bed turn over ball goose neck hitch. And billet grill

So what do you all think? Should I keep it, I really wish it had an automatic, and the new trucks(99-00) have been calling my name. The only things I would like to keep off of it would be the Terminator, and the Wildman chip, so I could put them on the new rig. What would you do?

to bad we live so far apart. I'd swap my auto for your 5 spd. Then again it must be quite the project(adding the clutch pedal assembly, hydralic clutch set up, flywheel, cutting a whole in the floor, differnt length driveshafts too maybe, computer ect.

I owned a 89 7.3 idi with a 4 speed manual no o/d and 4.10 gears a few yearsd ago and it shifted horrible. It would clunk and bang no matter how you shifted it. Would jerk your face into the windshield almost when you let off to press the clutch. I'd like to think the 94 and ups shift better.

So the only reason you'd consider selling it is to get a newer one???

The thought has crossed my mind a few times, too. If someone would pay what I think my truck is worth, I might would do it.

I have been looking at a few 99s and a few 00s. Haven't found one that really jumps out at me though. I don't know maybe the diesel fumes are getting to me, I really do like my truck and think it would probably be a ten if it had an auto. I'm with you too Pipe, if I could get what I wanted for it I would most likely sell it. Maybe I shouldn't say that though someone will probably make me an offer I can't refuse and I'll have to make an excuse why I can't sell it
