Another ZF6 swap

Just like most others doing this swap , I was just fed up with the auto. The truck has 180K on it and that was the 3rd auto trans rebuild, I just had enough.

Im doing this on a 1999.3 crewcab LB.

I didnt have a parts truck to pull everything off of . So i have just been gathering parts the last month or so.

Picked up the trans and t-case out of a 2000 with 200,000 miles on it. I thought i got a good deal till i took it to the trans shop to have a gone through, yeah, not so good of deal. So they rebuilt it and its ready to go....

I dont have a manual hump to replace where i cut the floor. But I have a lot of sheet metal tools. So im going to fabricate my own up.

Looks nice. If I had a crew cab I would contemplate this.

Forgot to mention, when i was pulling the auto out this morning and disconnecting the electrial plugs i found this ..... The plug on the passenger side of the trans was a little melted ( right next to the bypass cooler)

Any ideas on what could have caused this? looks to be burned about a foot into the harness, everything else looks fine.. Was wondering what that plug controls.
