Default Last Year of Manual Transmission?

I've noticed you can't get the new f-150 in the manual transmission...what is the last year the offered it?
I just want something with a manual transmission and 4x4. Is that so much to ask?

I don't think there are Manual versions of the 04-08 (4x4, there's V6 manuals.) or 2009 versions.

Only Manual I found was this one, which was a V6. (Also a pretty badass little truck..)

nice.
i base my assumption that they discontinued the 5-speed manual is that when i tried to build my dream truck on the ford website, they would only let me choose automatic.

well i'm taking it to the man and putting a 6 speed in my 04 5.4 4x4 next week.

finally lost 1 and 2 so 2200 for the same thing or up grade.

no question for me. time to upgrade.

guess i need to start gathering parts.

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).
