Trans Swap

Hello everyone. I have checked out a few posts on here about manual transmissions and swapping them into certain vehicles. My question is: What manual transmissions will bolt up to my 99 350 V10 Ext Cab 4x4 and 8 Foot bed. My preference is a 6 spd (just something personal I'd like to have.) Thank you for helping me out! -j

I have the stock 5 speed in mine and love it...

Mine is a 1999 F-250 V-10!

I typically run it like a 3 speed, first is real low and only use it when towing, 5th is real high and typically only use it near highway speeds...

Most of the time - it is 2nd, 3rd and 4th....

Good Luck

Jim

Thanks Jim! I see we have similar driving styles but my 1st gets used more in the WV mountains. These crazy towns have a 45 degree roads with a stop light in the middle of it. The granny helps get me out there without a whole lot of stress. Thanks again!

I'm still looking for manual transmission solutions for my 99, F350, V10, Super Cab, 4x4, 5 speed. What is out there that will bolt up to the motor? Thank you everyone! This is very very much appreciated!

I looked into this one a year or two ago and it seemed like the zf6 would mate up in the place of my 5 speed but had a transmission cooler and internal pump like an automatic so it wasn't purely plug and play and may have needed a different bell housing or adapter. Ultimately I decided to not bother as my 5 speed is working just fine but would revisit the topic if I ever had a severe malfunction and need rebuild/replace my tranny.

The tag on my transmission says: F18A-7003-FD

I know I'll need to do some fab work to make the ZF6 work. Has anyone done this swap from beginning to end without too much trouble?

Thank you everyone!

Just chiming in to say I'd be interested in doing this too, I have the exact same setup, 99 350 v10 ext. cab with a 5-speed stick. Since Ford refuses to make new trucks with sticks I'll just have to keep rebuilding this one till I die.
