The new ones pre auto shift all do. My 2014 Columbia dose and the clutch switch is going bad. Sometimes I have to push the clutch several times to get it to start. There are very few manual trucks left in our yard that don't have clutch switches on them.

I was going to say the reason it probably isnt to common is due to that. I mean even a 2018 579 I drove didn't have one. It makes sense though, because if that switch goes open circuit in most applications you'll only lose high idle, cruise control, and engine/jake brake.

Kinda like putting a leaf blower on a bonfire.... Gets raging hot, but little to no smoke or flames.

We need to know more about the truck
2007 KW W900, 2005 C15 with 890K original miles on it, one annoying thing is that it has a 10 speed with 3.36 rears in it. So the plan will be to pull the 18 speed out of the freightliner and install a cut off with 3.70s and full lockers.

10 speeds work just fine with modern engines.
