ZF5 for E4OD?

I'm looking at a few 7.3 trucks, but one I'm really interested in is a 1996 f350 crew cab. It's a pretty clean truck, nice body, 4x4 275,000 miles. Truck just lost its clutch and TBH I'm not sure I want another 5 speed 7.3. I wasn't a fan of it in my 94 crew cab. Has anyone ever swapped one out for a built E4OD? What is needed as far as electronics? I want to get rid of my dodge to lose my payment and get a cheaper truck. And I love the OBS crew cab trucks and I finally got my hands on one and I sold it a month later I want another one haha. Thanks guys and look forward to the input. Kyle

personally i like the 5 speed. especially the early close ratio one. it can be done your will need the trans, PCM, steering column, floor hump, carpet, the PRND21 fro the dash, trans x member, driveshafts (maybe), and trans harness. pedals if you want the "correct" brake pedal, or you can remove the clutch pedal.

it would be easiest if you had a donor truck

94.5 F250 Reg Cab 4x4 5 speed 4.10 276000 plus miles

97 F350 Crew Cab LB 4x4 5 speed 3.55 320000 plus miles (parts truck)

IIRC you need an entire dash harness, The manual trucks dont have the wiring for an automatic to run right. Yet its compatible the other way if you swap auto to 5 speed.

Trucks and parts............

I can get a donor truck easy. And I'm not against a 5 speed. Heck I never even owned an auto vehicle in my life until I bought a 96 Chevy a few years ago. I've had one 5 speed cummins, one 5 speed powerstroke, and 2 automatic cummins trucks And about 5 standard trans cars. I hated the auto's until I got the 96 cummins with the built ats trans. Now I love auto's, when built. My current dodge has a stock auto and I'm not keen on it. What I didn't like most about the ford I had was how low geared the dang thing was. The 4:10's were what killed it for me. Even with 35" tires it still sucked. 3:55's would give me a whole different opinion on the matter I'm sure. So maybe swapping in some 3:55's would be the thing to do. I have a dana 60 out of a dodge with 3:55's laying around.

That's why I pointed out it was a dodge because I wasn't sure. I figured a dana 60 was a dana 60 but I'm no master haha.
