@scott The 3rd Gen Ram 1500 Hemi never had a manual available, but the 4.7L did all the way up to 2008. I have a 2004 4.7L with 235HP and a 5 speed, which I enjoy. I was bummed, however, because in 2008 they bumped the 4.7L to 310HP and you could still get the 6 speed manual. I was all ready to buy that same engine/tranny combo when the 2009 4th gen Ram came out, but alas the stick was no longer available in any 1500 model - :-( I agree that a manual should be an option - I know when the Challenger first came out you could get the manual at an extra cost - which would be fine with me! Now you can still get the Chally with a manual, but it no longer has a price premium (the auto costs more). Anyone buying a manual SHOULD also know that re-selling it would be more difficult, but that is something I know I would be willing to accept.
