Oh yes, even if you've got a manual.. I'm not sure why there ISNT one.. considering sometimes it is nice to know the limits.. my '88 never had one.. and I was sorly tempted to just get an aftermarket one and stick it in there somewhere.

Yeah, no worries. My 99' does not have one and it is even a 5 speed.

I think it was an option to have one wasnt it? I know I have one and I am glad I do.

You can swap your gauge cluster out for one that has a tach.

Mine was the same way without the tach. I just got a cluster unit out of a SportTrac with the white face gauges and tach and swapped it into mine. Everything plugs in the same and you can get one for like 30 or so from a junkyard.

Ya, mine doesn't have one either. I got a 99 5 speed. If you swap one in though, won't it mess up the miles?
