my dad has just got his 07 cab & chassis back with the 6 spd in it. he loves it. traded an '04 F-350 for it that had a bully dog set up on it. this cummins has more torque and more low speed grunt than the ford. that is what he needs for towing. he didn't need the 6.0's get up and go at around 70. after you hit that point in the ford it would glide and we sometimes cruised at a gps rating at 125 mph!! it was awesome. but that was the play toy and he got a work toy now. the 6 spd is a little tougher shifting than the ford 6 spd. but he is used to it now.

It may be tough now...but wait until he gets some miles on that 6 speed, it will be shifting like butter. As with every new thing on a truck, it just needs some time to wear in.

Hi, My wife has a 2004 auto. I don't like it because when you let off the the throttle the auto goes into free wheel so no engine braking! I have a 2006 six speeed that I love, shifts like knife thru hot butter plus I also have a exhaust brake thats helps slow the truck! its the way to go!!!!!!!
