From what i've been told and seen, I think I'm the only X that I know of that came factory with a manual shift transfer case and factory manual locking hubs. I know for a fact that this isn't a retrofit, I'm the second owner of this truck (bought at 184k, interior looked brand new), now at 205k, and I still have the original window sticker from it, and it actually has the option on here for manual 4 wheel drive. Has any one else ran into this?

I'd pay extra to have a manual T-case and manual locker hubs come from the factory!! Saves $$ down the road when the auto stuff craps out!

You could order then either way. I have a manual transmission, but the electric transfer case and auto hubs. I converted to manual hubs when one auto hub failed. Now, I still have push-button shift-on-the-fly, but only if I remember to lock the hubs first!
