i'd also hit up the 3rd and 4th gen classifieds; i think i saw a thread in one of them titled "my place looks like a cummins graveyard" or something like that. might be worth looking into folks parting out trucks; not many folks end up interested in TCM wiring harnesses and stuff like that.

08 Resistol. Anarchy EFI, 5" TBE, Sinister coolant filter, Carbonite DP sensor, CSS -4" springs, reverse level, CalTracs, Amsoil bypass filter, Revmax VB/TCM, & a madly leaking radiator.

I used Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market and was able to find a G56 listed that was 30 miles from my house. When I went to talk to them about it, they had about six G56 trucks they were parting out and ended up selling me the trans at a "kit" price which pretty much meant I got everything I needed for the manual, including the interior parts off the donor trucks without having to pay for each piece seperatly.

I'm not sure how much money it saved but it did save a ton of time, I picked up the trans and then loaded all the other parts I could think of in the truck at one time. I only took me two hours to collect all the parts I needed for the swap and the only thing I waited for was my clutch to be shipped from Valair. Clutch, driveshafts(one had to be lengthened, I replaced the other), trans and all parts needed to put it in was about 4500 once I was finished. I didn't spend a ton of time shopping for the best deal on everything, I just needed it done an had a pretty small window to make it happen. I'm sure you could do better if you take your time and wait for deals.

Yeah, thats with everything.

$2600-Trans 30K miles w/ no core- including crossmember, shifter, upper and lower boots, shift knob, full pedal assembly w/ gas, clutch and brake pedal, Slave Cylinder w/ braket and cutch saftey switch, interior pieces(cup holder, trim, etc.).

$300- driveshafts, one lenghtened and one from junk yard. Junkyard offered to just trade with me but for some reason I didn't. That would have saved $150.

$1400- Valair double disk organtic "quiet" clutch.

H&S reprogrammed the truck for free

add $200 in taxes and its about $4500. There were some other little things, I think I had about $100 in Mobil Delvac 50, I picked up a rear main but didn't need it so I took that back. I distroyed the bolts holding the front driveshaft and dodge got me for $40 for those. I picked up a cheap transmission jack from harbor freight for like $60 that was good enough for what I needed but i wouldn't try it without a trans jack of some kind.

I didn't, I built one for the reverse lights, wired the safety switch to the P/N wire and I haven't really even started messing with the 4 low. After the swap I was pretty much over truck projects so that one is on hold for awhile. I never use 4 lo so I'm not real concerned, I might have used it once in the last 5 years I've owned the truck.
