I don’t think there was ever a “decision” to switch. An Ford person misspoke...Ford never ever said it was the 80 in any release or document. There is no confusion. Stock tranny is the 60; and has always been. Confusion here was based on speculation and false assumptions which became “fact”.I have also seen and read this. But there is no definitive information that tells us which transmission these vehicles actually have in them. Back to my original point, if these vehicles were manufactured before Ford made the decision to switch from the 10R80 to the 10R60, then they very well could have the 10R80 transmission and still be considered "stock". Again, it would be really nice if Ford would just clear up the confusion by releasing this information.
