We do alot of truck conversions for the lawn and pest industry so we have very close ties with the truck market. The columbia came out of a small fleet that runs coast to coast. The fleet apparently wanted a new truck before the 07' emmision change came into effect. The automatic transmission I'm sure adds 10,000 dollars on a new truck but I'm not sure about what it added to mine. This truck cost around 75,000 which isn't to hateful compared to what a new one costs ($121,000). Most fleets are going to this type of transmission because everyone drives a clutch and manual transmission differently, therefore saving repair costs and they are able to get less qualified people to drive them. Does this make you feel safe? Hope this helps.
