Bring backSuperDuty manual transmission
Please bring back the SuperDuty manual transmission. I was very dissapointed that the 2011 and up SuperDuty no longer had the option of a manual transmission. Since buying my 2012 F-250 my disappointment has only heightened as the TorqueShift auto seems to still be a work in progress. While it works fine ~90% of the time, it will at times surge between 1-2 (not fun when maneuvering a big truck through a parking garage), also drop off between 1-2, and just generally shift poorly at times between 2-3. None of these are consistantly reproducable so taking it back to the dealer seems futile, but they all negatively affect the day-today drivabilty and enjoyment of the truck. Please bring back the manual or at least fix the TorqueShift so it works consitently.

Jim D My 1999 F-250 is getting long in the tooth, but I will be forced to keep running it until they bring the manual trans back! I will not buy a Chevy or a Dodge!

William M Yes please bring it back, and on all trim levels, not just work trucks. I want King ranch with manual trans. Will not buy another ford until you do. Including the wife's car...had 3 explorers so far and two mustangs prior...next car will be a suburban if you dont build a truck with a manual...And Ford you can look up in your customer records and see I have not bought one in 5 years now...
