Re: Convert Auto to Manual
i was gonna do that when the tranny in mine went south, so i got me a beefy manual (nv4500) out of a one ton, well as i found out later one ton stuff doesn't bolt up to 1/2 ton, so i ended up rebuilding the auto anyways. (never fear, i found a new home for the nv4500)
im assuming yours is a 1/2 ton like mine, so you would have to go with an nv3500 which ive heard good and bad about. or you would have to get a one ton transfer case if you go nv4500 and the lenght on that is different enough that you would have to get the drive shafts lenghts adjusted.
in any case, youll also need the stick (no duh) brake pedal (narrower than auto) clutch pedal and linkage (i believe theyre all hydraulic) and i don't know if your puter is gonna be fricking out or not if you just unplug it from the tranny and let it hang.
