B and D.
Really? That is your response? I hoped for a better thought retort.
I had the opportunity to replace several auto- transmissions...expensive to say the least.
So, looking for an altenative expense, if I remenber right, the only US pickup truck made with a stickshift would be the RAM, with Cummins engine.
I wanted to "shop", but Ford, nor Chevy, provided that choice.
I do like the idea that I "can" and have shifted my vehicle gears.
I usually do not want to confront others, yourself included, online, but the comment made by you about the manhood-secure thing, well, seems to describe what I will not; seeing as we are on a forum that has a lot of folks that can and do drive stick-shifts.
Of course, I may have read your response incorrectly, so in advance, I do apologize if that's the case.
