08 was the last year that a manual transmission was available in a F-150, and even then it was only available with a V6, mostly XL and maybe some STX models as I understand it. I love my 08 4.2 V6 w/ 5-speed, as I'm not a fan of automatics, and never have been.
Now, I'm pretty sure that you couldn't get a 4x4 with a V6 and 5-speed in the later years of the 04-08 model; however, a local material supplier I used to work with had an 04 or 05 STX supercab, it had a manual transmission, and I'm almost certain it was a 4x4 with a manual transfer case. I could be wrong, as it's been a few years since I saw the inside of that truck, but I remember looking in it, seeing dual sticks, and marveling at the fact that you could still get a 100% manual 4x4 F-150 (which is what I would want for a 4x4, no automatic T-case or transmission).
