hey everybody,
I am looking for a 12v 4x4 with a manual transmission. Condition doesn't really matter as it's going to be a street legal offroad rig. Just looking for something that runs decent and is driveable. Thanks guys.

Does nobody have one? I've been looking all over the place for this setup and can't find any remotely near me or for a half decent price. I'm looking for something that needs TLC cosmetically as long as the motor/tranny are in good working order that is all that matters to me. The looks of the truck do not matter as I said it's going to be a trail truck and be getting worked HARD doesn't need to be pretty

Don't know if anyone has one but I'm still in the market....looking for something cheap to beat on...doesn't need to be in good condition...as long as it's registerable, runs and drives.

12 valve manual trans truck are hard to find and bring top $$, Because all the working class guys (that can't afford to buy new) want manual trans, and most of the new truck buyers are yuppies that are to lazy to shift and will by another truck in a year or so anyway. Also all the companies that buy work truck want them to be Slush-O-Matics because they think (know) that many of there employees can't operate a manual trans.

We have a few 12 valve autos that we want to swap to manuals, It is very hard to find junk trucks with sticks, 100s with auto, I think I am going to go to med/heavy duty route for manual trans for these dodge pickups.
