Hey Deezle, ... I'd be all over that if the price was right, 'course I'm 2WD but for pulling my big trailer the extra gear would be splendid. There are lots of guys having done this for various reasons, I have no need of 4WD and would "orphan" the front axle and shelf the transfer case, .... just my $.02, .... arty018:Heya Guys, I know its a bit off topic, but I found a guy locally that will part with a 6 speed out of an '04 for a great price. My Cummins 1st gen (93) is bolted to a getrag 5 spd- anyone know if I can bolt on the trans? What about the transfer case? The newer trucks have the front driveshaft on the left, mine is on the right, so I wonder about bolting my transfer case to the newer 6 spd... anyone have any ideas? I want to offer the guy some cash for it, but I wanna know if I am buying a trans I can even use... thanks ya'll!:confused013:
What about going from an a518 to a 5 speed manual- is it a lot of work?You can and you can't. It'll bolt on but requires a lot of body work to get it to fit from what I understand. You have to really want a 6-speed to get that involved. Get an NV4500 if you want to buy a newer trans or just get your 360 rebuilt if it ever needs it.
