At least the new 2500's still have a column shift!
Ya know, I really like my '14, but the dang dial-a-gear shifter on it is for the freakin' birds!
Mine is just a 2-wheel-drive, and recently here in NC we had a 10" snowfall. Yes seriously. Luckily it happened over a weekend, and the roads to and from work were pretty clear by Monday. So I drove it to work, actually drove to pick up a coworker and bring him in, worked a fairly full day, then took him home, drove home and promptly got the truck stuck in my own driveway!
I grew up in Iowa, I learned early about rocking a car back in forth in the snow to get it unstuck. Just TRY doing that with a dial-a-gear! You can't! And when you try, the stupid thing will talk to you—"you shifted too quickly to change gears". Insane, dang computer controlled s**t!
