Go to the junk yard and find a truck thats a manual and take the trans, both front and rear drivelines and anything else you think you might need. probably the cheapest way to go. Then sell you auto to someone else to recoup the costs.

ya. A guy that used to work with did the swap and the drive lines or drive shafts are different lengths. He bought the transmission transfer case front and rear drive shafts, new clutch with a none floating flywheel and i think he had about 3000 bucks in the swap. Not bad considering the clutch kit was almost 1000.
