Automatic to Manual Transmission

Hey gents, I am in the process of building a crawler. My question is, I have a 2000 Cherokee with a 4.0 and automatic tranny. I want to put a manual in it, I just like manual trannies. This will go into another buggy, so I'm not concerned with the codes. My question is, do I have to change the ECM in order for it to work properly.

Thanks for the input,
