Yeah...it will be interesting to see how it works out...I didn't like the 08's when they first came out either though, and now I do

not that many people will be mad. I think a read somewhere that less than 7% of all trucks ford makes are manuals... so i guess 7% will be mad... automatics have come so far though and they are so good these days its the only way to go i think.

I heard they don't really push the manual trannys anyway...maybe that's why they aren't so popular?

didn't GM already discontinue all their manual trannys? And last i'd read when you buy the Dodge's the Cummins has slightly less power with the manual tranny, than the one they sell you with the auto tranny (given that doesn't mean crap thanks to the aftermarket)
