ZF 6 Swap

I want to replace my 4r100 with a ZF 6, but am having trouble finding what I will need, basically. I know that I will need the transmission obviously, along with the clutch pedal and the assembly, but what else? Also, where is a good place to buy a ZF 6? I'm thinking that finding the transmission will be the hardest part... Are there any places online that sell ZF 6 swap kits? I've tried Google but it wasn't any help... :smoke

ETA - My ESOF 4x4 will work properly with the ZF 6... Right?

Thank you! Some guy on another diesel site (uh, more specific to my truck) couldn't understand why and basically made it sound impossible. I'm going to send Sogrand a PM and ask him to chime in...

clutch pedal+assy
master & slave cylinder
flywheel and clutch (i'd go straight to a sbc ofe or higher)
tranny

are the mounts different?
lengths of auto vs. 6spd? what about driveshaft lengths, crossmembers, etc.

probably a new pcm without auto tranny programming...

new steering column cover

i've also heard the floorpan on the manual tranny is much higher, so that may be a pretty major roadblock for you.

probably a narrower brake pedal


...good luck

Zaairman, What did you figure out.
If my auto fails me again. I am going with the ZF6. If you wanna fill me in on what you know and what it takes that would be great

I'm figuring about $2500 - $3000 for the heavy duty version. The transmission, T-case input shaft and clutch would be from SoGrand. Slave cylinder, clutch pedal, and shifter would come from Ford (or maybe a short throw shifter :shrug: ). Front drive shaft will need to be lengthened, rear shortened. Computer would need a tune. What I'm really hoping for is to find somebody who wants an auto in place of their stick...
