Question manual to auto

Hi guys,
I would like to know how difficult it would be to take the 6-speed manual trans out of the truck and put in a automatic
I live in curacao,which is a small island and all the shifting is beginning to drive me crazy but I love the truck
I have a E-350 which I can use as a donor vehicle to take all the parts off
Please let me know what you guys think,

thanks,
michael

dunno but i want your manual! give me a price...

I would say it would be easyer to go to an auto just due to the fact that you need to swap columns but dont have to cut a hole in floor, dont have to mount another pedal, dont have to mount a master cylinder ect.
You do need to have the computer reburned to control an auto. and i am sure there is a great deal of wiring, but i really dont know, i just do know that i want a 6spd in my OBS in the worst way!

I dunno man....that seems like an awful lot of work to deal with just to avoid the clutch. If'n ya chase the lil lady around the couch a dozen times a day your leg strength will increase tenfold.
