Default '91 auto to manual trans swap

hey i have a 91 with a 3.0, 2wd and automatic trans and was thinking of switching to a 5 speed manual. ive been looking on here to find a post but havent on this type of swap.

has anybody done this? the difficulty? im thinking its going to be alot once i get into this, stuff like rear end gears, driveshafts?, electric hook ups and computer tech maybe??

any answers are great thanks!

Default Re: '91 auto to manual trans swap

well luckly the 2nd gen rangers arent that complicated , i have an auto parts truck with a manual daily driver (2.9l) and as far as i can tell they have the same cross memeber and mount in the same spot so it should just be as simple as switching out the transmission and ecm and cutting a hole in the carpet ( if i remember correctly the hole for the shifter should just have a plate bolted over it)
also i know that my two rangers have the same gears in the axle and that the drive shafts seem to be interchangable so if yah find like a 91 5 speed with a blown motor you should be able to get everything yah need at least thats what i would recomend

oh and nice looking truck
