Default

manufacturers took away the standard stick because of constant repairs
Larger companies all buy automatics because each vehicle has many different drivers

If you really want to make a Ram into a performance vehicle
gut the dash electronics
design & build a bell housing that will fit the new 5.7 & install a stick shift transmission
yank out the computers & install a engine controller like the ones NasCar uses

then all you have to do is move to an area where there is no SMOG checks or laws & then find a good mechanic

Sure as the sky is normally above you, the Chrysler people are not going to change their way of thinking
