Those trucks (with the 5.9 liter Cummins) are somewhat iconic and in many ways, better than some of the later 3/4 ton diesels. The manual trans is more desirable, in my opinion. The Chrysler 4 speed autos were kinda problematic. No self respecting diesel “truck guy” would shy away from a stick shift!
Still way overpriced in my opinion (yes, I know they sold it). I’d like another stick shift, myself. A manual trans would be a pro rather than a con, for me. I don’t really do “city” driving anyway.
