Auto to manual swap. 2nd gen 2wd

Hey guys I was going to go crazy and put a 10 SPD fuller in my truck till a guy bought it off me to put in his 5.9l 12v power military deuce and half. So I'm now looking at a g56 or going with a ford ZF6 heard the ZF is stronger. Well all in all what am I looking at other then the trans, flywheel, and clutch. Do I need complete manual pedals or just a small brake pedal, and the parts for the clutch pedal, I got a new master cylinder I'm sure I can make work if I use a ZF trans. Can some one help with a list of what to due to swap out the 47RE to a manual. Thanks guys I need to start looking at buying parts soon I want to do this swap over the winter.

i am currently in the middle of my swap...best thing is to find a donor truck...you will pay way to much if you go individual parts....mine is a 2000 2wd also...the only thing i have left is the drive shaft...the donor truck had a splt shaft with a bearing in the middle....and well its to short and the bearing holder dont line up....so now thats what im trouble shooting...otherwise it would be on the road!

Donor truck is a no go, if I found one it would coast to much, as around here people don't like to give up any dodge diesel truck parts with out asking for a ton of money, so I'm hitting up the wrecking yards for some of the needed parts, I can have a drive shaft made up no problem. What's all needed in the cab, do I need a complete pedal assembly or do I just find a smaller brake pedal and add in the clutch assembly.

Ok how strong is the nv4500 I see 14500 gvw. But what about hauling could it hold up to daily abuse of up to 26,000 lbs. I found s good used nv4500 for a couple hundred bucks.
