Lightbulb manual or automatic?

When I was looking for a new truck there is a trend that I noticed. Where did the manual option go? It seems to me you can't buy a full size half ton v8 with a manual trans even the new express. How mutch fun would that be! I wanted to set it up as a poll opps! Well still want to know how everyone feels

Manual tranny all the way. My last truck was a stick and I swore that I'd keep it forever but it just got too tired to keep going. So I Figured it would be pretty hard to find another. When I looked at my Ram and saw it was stick I had to have it cause I wasn't gonna find another.

Bikenut will become famous soon enough

I still have love for manual too but not for towing. It should always been an option you can at least order IMO

Default Manual anytime

My truck is a manual with an aftermarket Hurst Pro Comp shifter. And I love it. V8, RWD, manual with hurst shifter. It don't get any better. I want to have this truck prefferably for the rest of my life. The interior is mint, body is mint. Never winter driven since I store it for the winter. It ain't just the outright speed of a vehicle. It's about assaulting your senses and how it makes your feel while your doing it. It's about storing up memories and sensations. Automatics don't do that for me.
