We won't get any pickup versions due to the Chicken Tax.

Also the "130" is the same wheelbase as the "110". Both are 119" wheelbase.

Re: Andrew Goh is having a few issues in Skagway

You can disconnect the cable from underneath and then shift manually.

It could also be the shift interlock solenoid preventing it. Either the solenoid is broken or the neutral sensor for the transmission is not working.

You can remove the solenoid. It is four bolts and it pops right out.
