real trucks need real transmissions.I want to upshift or downshift when the need is there not when an onboard computer decides to.

John C Great idea. I recommend a 6 or 7 speed if possible.

Lewis C I agree with you, Zach and Ben. Ford should seriously bring back the manual, as I have mentioned before, there should be the option to be able to control out truck the way we want to, not when a computer sends a message to the ecu to direct the torque converter to "shift" the transmission (or whichever order it goes to, I forget).

Zach M I also agree. What is a truck without a manual transmission?

Ben J I agree, bring back the good old 5-speed manuals.  I still have one and will drive that truck over anyones brand new automatic.  It is hard to beat putting the truck in gear and driving a comfortable speed.  Automatics want to shift constantly when you are at those in-between speeds or just tap the gas to speed up a couple mph.  I think alot more people would by them than Ford thinks.
