Going from an automatic to a manual is certainly a bigger job than going from a manual to an automatic, as I did, is. Not only do you need a new transmission, you need a new engine computer, clutch and clutch mechanism, hydraulic clutch control system, a new input shaft for the transfer case, and both driveshafts will need to have their lengths modified due to the transmission's different length.

Most of us who offroad on want to go the other direction.
