Re: Manual Locking Hubs - 4X4
Manual anything or standard equipment, is going to be a special order. You'll not find a "standard equipment" truck on any dealer lot, unless they are a fleet dealer w/ a buy gone bad.
The profit margin is just not there for a dealer to stock a manual trans, manual 4wd.
Let's face it - most of us here are looking at at least an XLT package, I'd guess the vast majorty are "lariat" and I've seen so many guys with Crewcab King Ranchs here, I wonder Ford's profits aren't in better shape. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif[/img]
Most of the car/truck buying American's now wouldn't know how to use a manual transmission anyway (I know my wife can't, & its almost caused divorce, I'm so disgusted with her).
