I got a 2008 mega cab dually, and love it. I got a 68rfe auto though. From what I read the manual trannie trucks are derated to 325 hp. The trannie can take the hp, but the clutch can't. So if your planning on any mods, you'll have to beef up the clutch. Again, I just know what I've read. I also can tell you that I talked to service tech at my dealer for a long time about all sorts of things. He said he was a manual guy all the way, but if he was going to buy a new truck, it would be an auto. I've averaged 13.5 mpg empty, but I have just over 2000 miles on, and I am bone stock. They ride about like any other one ton truck, a little stiff, but not terrible.
