Second Gen Auto to Manual Conversion

Anybody have any experience with this type of conversion let me know. Like where to find parts and how was your conversion, and were you happy with it and problems that you had. Thanks

A lot of guys here have done it. I bought a wrecked truck and pulled everything I needed from it. I loved it, completely new truck.

Yeah I was thinking the same but the truck would have to be very specific which would probably cost more than buying individually.Did you convert your steering over from auto to manual or was it in your donor truck?

Yeah I'll give it a try. Now when you mean remove it does it entail cutting it off?

You drive the pin out and take off the lever. then use some black steel or plastic to make a cover for it.

Is there anybody you recommend that can go through a tranfer case and confirm all is good before I put it back together?

I live in the Barrie area but have no problem driving somewhere if i know its going to be done right

there aren't any transfer case specialist shops around you, but that said it's easy to take these transfer cases apart and inspect them.

PM me if you like, I've ripped a few of these apart and they're not hard to deal with as long as you own a socket set
