Being a budget build never did consider a manual trans as it would have been a MAJOR increase in cost to build with little to gain. As someone mentioned here there are no longer any manual trans in any ford pickup. I currently run a 6R80 6 spd so do not think it would have been a noticeable gain with a manual. ALso that would mean I would not have all the other creature comforts like Electronic Steering, Stability control, trailer sway control etc. It's very close to stock F100 ride height. Lowered is when the rockers drag the ground . . Knowing full well what the FE difference was with it being lowered some that's why I went thru all the work to channel the body down over the chassis.
