How hard is it to change an Manual trans to an automatic trans? I have found all kinds of automatic transmissions for this vehicle and no good manual transmissions. What other parts would I need? Flywheel, maybe the drive shaft, Do I need the computer out of the donor vehicle or any other wiring?
Any help would be appercaited.
Thank you

You will need the trans, converter, wiring harness, computer, driveshaft modification, possibly a different crossmember, shifter and there will be some other small things, there always is in this kind of swap. Personally I would fix the manual and sell that truck adn get an auto if that is what you are after

Thank you
I'm looking to keep it. The vehicle was from Texas and has NO rust. Not a thing you see here in Michigan. Thanks again I'll keep looking for the manual.
