It would be a bolt in deal-just make sure to get the trim that goes with the auto (for the shifter). Everything else is identical, but the auto doesn't have the button to push to release the key!

Same question here. I guess if you need one and it's cheap.

I hope you take the auto shifter off. It'd be funny looking with them both in the cab. Post a pic if you get it in.

the auto steering columns are a bit more common than 5 speed columns and my steering wheel bearings are very loose. through the research ive done everyone says its easier to replace the whole column than replacing the bearings.

I think it'd look awesome with an auto and a 5-spd. You could tell people you're such a hardcore trucker, you need both!

I don't think changing the bearings are to bad but you do need to take hole column apart. I think it will bolt in should work just take shifter off and put your covers on.
