    Just bought a 2006 6 speed tranny with 44,000 miles on it to replace my slipping 97 3 speed auto. Never done an auto to manual swap so I'll take any advise you guys can give me i.e. parts list, etc. I am wondering what all will work from an 5 speed manual tranny? Will the shifter handle, and drive shaft from a manual TJ work on the 06 6 speed? I'll take any advise.

    Thanks

    i thank the 6speed is longer than the 3 speed auto
    so you may need a SYE if you do not have one

    Gonna need a clutch pedal and master cylinder and the brake pedal from a manual truck (or just cut the auto pedal down like I did)

    Let me look in the shop. I may have a stock 6 speed knob you can have. Just pay the shipping on it.

    BTW the wife has been wanting to do this swap on her 04 auto rubi... So I am interested in how this turns out for you.

    ok that sounds great about the shifter knob. I'll keep my progress posted on here, from what i understand its not too hard of a swap. Now that I have my tranny im just waiting on taxes to come in so i can purchase the rest of the goodies an start putting her in there. I'm excited to get that granny low gear that the six speed has. I have 3.07's so the lower gearing will be a welcome change. I'll eventually get me a 3.73 or 4.11 front and rear end and my TJ will be just about like i want it.

    I have a stock manual drive shaft or 3 I think.
    All yours for shipping.
    (i'd guess the cheapest would be the USPS for the "if it fits, it ships theory?)
