Zf6 swap?

The truck is under the knife now and once back together the transmission will be the weak link. A built trans isn't cheap and I'd rather have a standard. I figure I'd need a zf6, dual disc clutch, pedals and probably some other stuff and what kind of fabricating would I have to do to make it run and look like it came from the factory? Is there any shops out there that could do it? No I don't want to sell my truck and buy a standard cause I know that's gonna come up haha
Thanks, jdiamond

Coming from someone with a zf6, I would recommend that you save up and get a built automatic. Especially after seeing what all you want done to the truck. You can't do a boosted launch, lose boost between shifts, shifts are hella slow etc.
