its involved. i think most of the wiring is already in place, but you will need the pcm that controls the shifting, a different instrument cluster, shift linkage, different drive shaft, coolers, and a steering column cover. i think thats it.

ive heard of trucks going from auto to manual. but havent heard or dont remember reading from going from manual to auto.

You definitely DO NOT need all that stuff to swap a manual in your truck.

I'm getting ready to swap a manual in mine next month.

Here is the basics of what you need for a 7.3l. Not sure what what be different on the 6.0.

transmission
new PCM(from a manual tranny truck)
Transmission
new imput shaft for the transfer case(or a new transfer case), because the splines are different on the manual

clutch pedal assembly
master/Slave cylinder assembly including reservoir
new flywheel
clutch kit
Got change a few wiring things.

and a few other things

thats the basics


The steering column is the same, you just have to change over to some of the manual pieces.

I'm not gonna mess with it for the time being, nore the instrument cluster, but that is personal preference. Just gonna get the swap done, and the truck driveable worry about that stuff later on
