Pros -
1. It's a Cummins!! Say no more:lol3:
2. It's a 5.9, no issues with emissions and other stuff with the newer 6.7
3. The six speed manual is supposed to be a great tranny, I have the auto, but guys lover that six speed manual
4. It's a cummins!! :rof
5. All your buddies will be jealous...

The only downfall I see, which really isn't a downfall, is that the 6 speed manual is typically 4.10 gears, if I'm wrong someone else can jump in. For city and around town it's great, but it will rev at a higher RPM on the highway, thus lower MPG's if you like to go over about 70MPH on the highway.

Not really a con, but worth noting.

just my .02

I hear that people love the manual, since they can take a lot more "punishment":lol3:. I have an automatic and i am taking care of it with all of my upgrades. I fear in the feature that i will have to rebuild the tranny:CRY:. But i still drive it like i stole it. :rof
