    Anything is possible, just a matter of time and money. Depending on the model, most of the 2007's were available with a standard transmission except the double cab long bed. Just a matter of finding a transmission and having a shop make the switch. I would imagine it would be a fairly expensive adventure to downgrade your truck (in the eyes of the dealer, personally, I wish I had a manual also).

    Trade it for a stick. Very costly and complicated to switch.

    Make sure you spend a long and cozy test drive with a six speed truck.... drives totally different than any other manual tranny vehicle I have ever drove... I have drove everything from dump trucks to mustangs, willys jeeps to mercedes. These new 6 speeds, are different bc of a shitty shifter, and Electronic Throttle Control. If you do get one drive long enuff to realize how much it sucks, then order Gadget's URD Short throw. Gadgets shifter proably just kept me from trading my 09 in on an auto... The low gearing and fuel mileage still sucks tho.

    I love my standard..... Then again most of my vehicles have been standard.... Before I bought the X I had an automatic frontier...... I missed standard so bad I had to go back.... So I sold it and got the X. Conversion can be done and may not even be that hard.... You may wanna find a new ecu though since this one will throw a CEL since it's not gonna be detecting the auto anymore. Since they offered this in a manual then all the bolt holes are gonna be there it's just a matter of finding the tranny.
