Has anyone put a 6 speed manual trans in their explorer? If so how much and how difficult?

I really don't know much about transmissions other than I like shifting them but from my limited knowledge I think a mustang trans should bolt up to it.

Yeah I miss having a manual, and I love me explorer. So I thought why not combine the two :) just testing the waters, that would be awesome if it were that easy!
 






Yeah I'm in the same boat learned to drive on a cooper s that is a go-kart with a stick shift and a big go pedal, I miss those days but love the X to much. Yeah I could be completely wrong but I hear that you need to bolt up like some solenoids or something to trick the computer into thinking you still have the cruddy auto box hooked up.

I still have mine. It was factory stock but the Ranger trans bolts straight on. I have heard of a few people doing it but I dont think they started a build thread.

I wonder how hard it'd be...
 






Try it and make a thread :) not sure if the pedal assemblies are easy interchange from a ranger or older ex to a 3rd gen.
 






As far as the V8 Explorers go, the 99 F150 5.4l manual trans works for the Explorer I know of one person who has done it.
