zf6 to auto

Just as the title says, I want to get away from the stick, and go auto, I love my truck to death, so getting rid of it is not an option.

Does anyone know of a list, of things I will need. Swaps don't scare me, but it sure would be nice if someone else has already put together a shopping list.

Same thing as a manual swap but reverse...

At least thats what youll be told.

You need to swap the entire main body harness on the truck to go manual to auto.

These trucks have both a cooler in a rad and a stanalone

Yeah you probably are the first, nobody wants to do it because none of the transmission wiring is there.

Youl have to pull the dash, and since youll be that far in anyway you may as well pull the engine to make the harness swap easier.

Im real damn sick of the zf6, sounds like it might be less work to toss an allison in it.

haha you wish.

you need harness, auto pcm or get your pcm re-flashed, transmission spacer between trans and engine. transfer case with a shorter input shaft, hell you might even need the whole steering column from an auto, but you'll definitely need to add the shift knob plus the linkage.

i think the manual swaps way easier

before you do look at your driver side fender, there should be a few plugs , see if you have a populated one with extra pins/ a plug on the end of it, then all you need is the transmission harness.... worse case you are going to need the engine bay harness....

I have 3 plugs, all with wire going in them, they head under the truck towards the back of the rig. These ones you are talking about?
