Great thread! Lots of excellent trucks.

Here is my old 2005 Chevy 2500HD 4wd. I special ordered it with the 496 c.i. motor (a real stomper) and the 6 speed manual 'ZF' tranny. Also had the factory dual battery setup with a monster alternator. Transfer case was manual too. When it came in, I had the dealer swap out the aluminum alloy wheels that came on it for the factory steel wheels that come standard on the 3500s (wider). I also had them install a rear helper leaf from a 3500. It had the 11.5" rearend with factory locker. I eventually put on a Tru-Flo air intake and had a Flomaster "Big Block 50" exhaust ready to go (never got around to installing the exhaust as I had to unload the truck - damn divorce). LOVED it. Had a Speedliner sprayed-in and used it to carry my slide-in Northstar camper. Truck was STRONG.

My new to me 68 GMC. After being without an old truck for 4 years, I sold my Silverado crew-cab and bought this and a beater car.

Has a 350, 350 trans and a a pretty nice set of Escalade buckets. For now I am just going to drive it. Maybe next year it will get a paint job.

By virtue of its function-over-form option package, I think it is.

14 wheels would do less damage than 28, and the 14 wheels with some weight on the back would probably do less damage than bouncing across the road empty. Not to mention the saving in diesel fuel.

That is a rare beast!

I got a friend who has ~'01 Superduty Lariet Powerstroke full loaded except it has the 6-speed manual and manual transfer case. Apparently orded by a rancher who was doing well, but just didn't like that automatic stuff. He has a list of friends who want that truck if he ever decides to sell it.

Well optioned big modern trucks with stick shifts are hard to find and sought after by many.

My old neighbor (I moved, he didn't) has a '99 F-250 extra cab, manual, blue, 100,000 miles on it. It's a beauty!
