Zf6 speed swap

The automatic transmission is about to die in my 2000 F-250 7.3L. I want to swap for the zf6 speed. I'm not sure what I need to do it. Can anyone out there give me a list of everything I need for the whole swap, and can give a few numbers on the cost of the whole operation. Thank you.

find a wrecked truck with a 6 speed.
this route should cost 1500-2500.

master/slave cylinder from ford. pre-bled.
pedal assembly.
auto pcm will work. but not the other way around if you swap to an auto.
you will need to modify the neutral safety switch so it starts with the manual.
you need a 6 sp trans and transfer case with the right input shaft (thats why its easier if you pull everything from a wrecked truck.

new cooler lines for the manual.
buy a whole clutch assembly that comes with a flywheel.

I looked up everything i need for the swap and added all the numbers and came just shy of $2700, which sounds reasonable. I have the 4r100 automatic transmission, would I have to install a different transfer case and driveshafts, because not needing a different transfer case and driveshafts would save me $700.

The transfer case is mostly the same. You would need to change the input and if it's manual shift the linkage is a different length. Drive shafts are different, IIRC the rear is shorter and the front longer.
