I will... But it will not be until July or so? Maybe someone else with a 6 Spd will be in hills before that.

Be aware that when Thor comes out with its 2017 models this summer, they will still be on the 2016 Ford chassis - if that makes a difference to you. There have been rumors of the 2017 Ford models...
