auto to manual conversion?

So I finaly got my truck running good, new tires and a few fun mods. But Its my only vehical thats an auto and I really would like it to be a stick. Has anyone ever done this? and if so, how hard it was to do? Ive heard once you start to mod these trucks alot more the tranny starts to just turn to crap. And Ive also heard manuals hold up alot better as long as you upgrade the clutch. A friend of mine has a clutch peddle assembly and drive shafts for my body style truck so I would need to find the tranny and Im sure a few other things.

will do the only thing holding me back is that i have heard that people have had electrical problems, and that the auto wiring harness does not match up with the zf5. but i also know that plenty of guys have done it trouble free.

Yes

Yes the IDI 7.3l has the same block configuration as our 1st and possibly second (not to pos. on that one though) Gen. PSD's. I pulled mine out of a 93' 7.3 and i mocked it up and all matches. But the auto has a smaller input shaft size than the standard, just to let you know. Hope it helped,
