Where is everyone sourcing them from? I need everything from the actual trans/transfer case (g360,nv4500,nv5600,g56) to the pedals.
Everywhere I see them, they are stupid money. Am I missing something, or do I just need to plan on spending 3-4K on the swap?

You are having to use OEM parts and yes they have become more and more costly since there are more people wanting to do a manual swap then an auto. Good old economics of supply and demand. ;)

I guess it’s old folks like me wanting manuals. It seems like every person I see or talk to want an auto.
There are a few reman nv4500’s on eBay for around 2k without a core. $300+ for a set of pedals is nuts.

not really.. your talking about parts that were only used for 4 years and then completally orphaned by Dodge now its 26 years later and those parts are getting very scarce and seriously hard to come by... at least if ya wanna do a factory type install, now if your a fabricator then a whole bunch of doors open up for ya as a lil cutting and welding and ya can adapt later post 94 parts to your first gen or find an early set of pedals from a gas truck and adapte the clutch for a hydraulic master cyl. but if your looking for true first gen parts... gotta spend the $$

The Chummins/Fummins guys often scrap the rest of the the Dodge once they hack out the engine. Got one pedal setup that way.

I can not recall ever coming across someone converting a 2nd Gen set of pedals....seems like a ton of work. I would look for a set of clutch pedals from a 88 and older dodge ram, they did not have a hydraulic clutch system so are missing the tab for the clutch MC. I would then weld on a tab for the clutch MC and be done, with a lot less re-engineering required.

Check out car-part.com....might be able to find what you need from a junkyard truck.

Thanks. Unfortunately, the big parts yards are a minimum of 2hrs away from me. I’ve been looking on car-part, but most yard I contact and try to help me out, don’t seem to want to fool with pulling and shipping them. I may just bite the bullet and buy new re-pop ones.

What kind of a junkyard doesn't want to pull parts to sell....seems they don't understand how running a junkyard works.:coocoo

I guess crawling under the dash isn’t worth it to them. A lot of the trucks on car-part are old stock too. You can see some of the picture dates are back in 2016. Some tell me the trucks are long gone. Car-part is a good source, but I think it’s more aimed towards the late model market.

Bizarre. All the yards around here have gone to 'we-pull'. The u-pick yards are gone.

Yeah all the local ones to me are the same, makes "hot rodding" a lot more difficult. :(

5spd is shorter.... So longer rear shaft, and shorter front shaft.
