    They mated the 5.3 to a 5spd in a Z71 with a floor shift 99-02 then in 03 up it was only a 4,8 5spd 4x4 in WT trim.

    low sales/orders equate to no more production. Even class8 trucks are now selling more automatics than sticks, do to the lack of knowledge to use the stick. too many youngsters and females climbing behind the wheel of big rigs and no experience driving stick so they usually burn up the clutches far too soon. Auomatic is the future like it or not. Personally i don't like it .
