if you're gonna go to all the trouble to fit a 6 speed auto then why not go to all the trouble of fitting a 6 speed manual instead - less loss thru the drivetrain and more economical...

i'd be inclined to say the 6 speed auto will be more economical then the 6 speed manual.
some of the cruising RPM's for the auto are awesome.

4.1 1st gear in the 6 speed auto + 4.11 diff gears wouldn't see much traction :|

theres a thing there on the ford web site where you can opt for a 4.11 gear upgrade for an extra $400 bucks.
