My dad's 5.9 (2006) has the 6 speed and i beg him just to drive it lol. I love having the manual. It works so much better for hauling, and especially with that granny low "1st" gear. My grandpa has a 5.9 (2003) with the auto and its got well over 200,000 miles doing nothing but hauling campers and its still running perfect. It shifts a little rough when you get into it, but its a truck. IMO the 6 speed is just a better choice. I wish my truck (5.9 gas) had a 5 speed, because there are times goin up a hill at 75 and im runnin a good 2,000 rpms and it still decides to down shift. I think my truck may be stupid lol.
