i don't have the new order guides, are you sure you said this right, that you can get an HD, (i am guessing harley davidson, but maybe i am wrong) with a manual but only with a v-10?? thats news to me, i have been told no manuals with HD or KR, period.
and as far as your wiring and stuff of the like, you or me can get a lariat with the heated seats, electric 4x4, and the key pad thing on the door, with a stick. the king ranch is no different. its simply a preference of ford, they want to do it that way and won't change for their customers. it has nothing to do with wires or cutting or any of that crap. the engines and trans are put in the frames before the bodies are put on so again, no conflict there. they can build it in a lariat, they can do it with harley and king ranch too.
and ford continues to lie, or shall i say, not speak the truth. thats all. BILL
