Default manual to auto swap

would it be easier to swap out my manual 5spd to auto or to just buy another truck and sell this one??

I'm disabled and the clutch is a major pain for me,..

I bought it cause I got a great deal on it..

Anything can be done if you have the time/money. Usually people swap auto to manual. That being said, I'd just sell it and get one with auto trans.

swapping in auto in place of a manual is much easier than the opposite. you need a tranny, steering column with shifter cable, computer, wiring harness, cut the clutch pedal off, and driveshaft

I would just find a truck with the transmission you want. While doing the swap is possible, it won't be cheap because of all the components you would need to change out. Unless you are on really good terms with a junkyard and can do the work yourself....
