Re: switching my 93 from auto to manuel trans

You're probably going to want to find a donor truck for this. You'll need to accommodate for the clutch linkage and hydraulics, Access throught he floor for the shifter, moving the reverse lights from the column to the transmission, either overriding or relocating the starting interlock (looks for the clutch to be depressed rather than the tranny in park). The hard part is the mounting hardware, which s why I recommend getting a donor truck of the same generation and take measurements to verify things such as the same length drive shaft and mounting locations.
