Yeah buddy! It is pretty sweet having it in mine. I wish my final drive gear wasn't quite as low but still have no complaints. I think a ZF 6 speed would be so cool in an obs as well.

I know a few that have gone through all the work and would have loved to do that as well. But I just don't have the time to mess with all that's involved, much less dropping that kind of $$$ on all the late model parts needed.

I feel ya man. I wanted one too but you see what I ultimately ended with. Oh well, I'm still stoked...

All you would gain from a ZF6 is a granny low 1st gear. Final drive gear is almost identical.

Another question on this.
Will the 4x4 shifter parts from the auto bolt right up to the ZF5?

Yahtzee. The way I see it the 5speed is better... less gear banging. Not a big deal on the highway, but to me driving a 6 speed in town is a bit of a PITA.

Basically same as teh 5 speed. Just start off in 2nd gear with the 6 speed cause the granny 1st gear is useless without a heavy load behind you.

The few that I have driven were cranky about taking off in 2nd. I grew up using 1st as a granny gear in everything I drove, threw me for a loop when I had to actually use 1st

I have only driven one 6 speed which is my dad's cummins. If you let the clutch slow it will take off in 4th without stalling. Every manual trans diesel that I have seen makes that grinding/lugging noise when using 2nd or higher starting off but I don't think that hurts anything. In my 5 speed OBS I can start off in 2nd with no problem even with my DMF going out. I have never driven a ZF-6 before though. I still like the spaced out gears in a 5 speed because it's almost impossible to not get it in the right gear.

iv thought about the zf6 the gears in my zf-5 are too far apart for my liking, you can always skip gears when running empty

there is several times i wish i had a 3rd and a half gear second and a half would be nice occasionally as well. 5th to 4th drop is about right but once in 4th you got to wait till about 2k rpms and 45mph to downshift to 3rd where you jump up to almost 3k. 2nd-3rd gear has almost a 1k rpm difference witch can be a bit annoying when starting out on a really steep hill with a load

You could split gears if you put in a Gear Vendors unit...

it would be nice to find a 2 speed rear end that would fit my truck but the likelihood of that is probably pretty rare. a gear vendor unit would be nice but them suckers get spendy as well.

I don't know whether or not he would do that swap for you. I only a got a trans from there. Either way, really pleasant doing business w them. J&S Standard transmissions. Maybe j&p. they changed the name and can't remember which is the new name. Ask for James.
