Good luck bud, it's an expensive venture, and the ZF6's are not easy to find. I will still do it, but not for a while. A rebuit ZF6 runs about $3k, then you need a rear engine cover for a manual tranny, new t-case or swapped input shafts, PCM, pedal assy, master cylinder, slave cylinder, welding skills for rebuilding the tranny tunnel. I think that the driveshafts are the only thing you could reuse, LOL

When I do it, I hope to just buy a donor truck to rob parts from

Yeah, it would be VERY time consuming to search for and buy all the necessary parts, and no matter how good you are, you're going to forget some key part that will put the brakes on the project. I hate that, because I end up losing my gusto to get it done . I'm still doing it like I said, but its not as easy as I had hoped. For the 7.3's, at least you don't have to fug with the rear engine cover. Why International made them different is WAY beyond me!

My wife looked at me like I was retarded when I told her I wanted a 6spd. Then one day she was sitting in traffic next to a PSD with a handshaker, and loved the way it sounded, the grunt you get releasing the clutch . She said she WANTS me to do the swap now


PS I would have done it anyway, but not listening to her nag me will be nice

I'm sure you can find someone to do it, but it ain't gonna be cheap. Fabbing is never cheap unless you do it yourself
