over the past couple months i have been giving my transmission hell. ive locked up overdrive, slipped every gear, and currently only gears i got is reverse and 3rd. i konw that built automatics are faster, but i think a manual is more fun overall.
how much trouble, or money would it take to get the swap over to a manual.
and does anybody know a good place to get it done at thats within couple hundred miles of kentucky?

you ran the stock auto with those sticks and chip, haha im surprised you have any gears. i agree tho hardest part is finding the parts esp now. there are about 3 very well written posts in the 98.5 section of couple guys who have done it and what you need. at some point it may be easier to go to the dealer and price out a few hard to find parts. the trans clucth and cylinder i would buy new, pedal assembly are rare, and the cosmetic pieces are prob gonna come new unless u find a wrecked truck in the yard somewhere.

You need a good wrecked truck! Or there were some adds for the swap for about 2000 in the classifieds, I'd search it. And don't put a stock clutch in once you do switch!! :LOL: Good luck
