I know I'm old school, but I wish that would come with a manual transmission.

Ya I just don't and have never gotten why every other country in the world makes just about every small truck with a diesel, just look on any over seas Craigslist for a Tacoma, Colorado, ranger etc. all have diesels.
Jeep came out with a diesel version of the Liberty a few years ago but stopped making them for some reason.
I've seen a lot of guys who do the cummins 4bt conversion, usually they get a hostess truck and pull the 4bt from them.
There is a company isuzudieselswapper.com that makes the adapter to bolt up a Isuzu from a NPR and drop it in to a 1/2 ton Chevy.
I think or hope dodge will offer a Manual, they offer or offered them in the 2500 , same thing w ford.
