the 6 speed doesnt add one more higher gear it adds one lower gear so that would be like adding a -1 gear to the 5 speed you have, the rest are pretty much identical. second the tranny is shepped different so you would have to do alot of custom crossmember/floor/ driveshaft work. and im pretty sure the sf 6 speed has an internal clutch slave clinder so pretty much all the trouble of putting this tranny in to get one low gear. and if you really need it put the transfer case in 4 low. if your bored tho and have alot of time and patience, one could do it, but its really not worth it in the end
