    Find a same year manual EX for everything but the trans. The manual ZF 5 speed will have to come out of an F-150. Check an F-150 forum for the trans specs. There are a couple threads here about that trans swap, but I haven't seen any specifics on the trans year/numbers.

    The F150 never came with a ZF. It came with an M5od-r2. The Zf came in the F250-350.

    Hmm, since there was never a 5 sp manual offered for the EX/Mounty 5.0, I know that the 5 sp man used for this swap came from a Ford pickup truck. I just assumed it was from the F-150. Thanks for the clarification. :thumbsup:

    Yes but be prepared for custom work to be done. If you search the site there is a write up on this with a 4wd v8 Ex.

    Don't forget to add tuning and a programmer into the budget, as custom tuning will also be needed to eliminate the transmission functions from the PCM program.

    On your 96 the speed sensor is in the transmission, which may throw yet another wrench into the cogs--
