zf6 swap into 96 f350 crew long bed

hopefully someone out there has an answer for me,
i have a zf5 currently,
will the zf6 out of a 99-06 bolt up?
any suggestions on how to do this right?

The only difference is the zf6 has a lower first gear ratio. The final drive ratio's are almost the same. And there is a bit of fab work for the clutch pedal assembly. Hope this helps. Merry X-mas

look this over... some people say its not really worth the trouble but the ones that have i never say they dont love it. the only problem with the swap is the ZF6 shifts horriable compared to the ZF5 and if you get a close ratio ZF5 there really isnt much diffeance with towing

^^^^ agreed..... it doesnt belong and thats whay we do things... when my auto trans blows a manual transmission is going in and i belive im gonna do the ZF6 swap myself. the one hurdle that i dont wana do is i belive you need the SD t-case with it and it just makes more parts that you need to buy. im not sure if that was mentioned in that link

also with the crossmember i hve heard that if you take the auto one and flip it upsidown and move it with new holes and bolts it will work??? but not positive on that, never seen it

Negative, when I made the swap there was no way in hell the same crossmember was going to work. Maybe it is different with a zf6 though
