  Hello I was wondering if there is a kit to convert my 2004 Dodge Ram Cummins Diesel 48RE Stock Auto Transmission to a 6 speed manual? Is there a company or brand that sells a full converison kit? Or is it easier to buy odds and ends to make a home made kit? If Anyone can help me with this Id really appreciate it.

 Thanks TC

Never seen a kit, however from what I've read you're best off finding a parts truck and/or piecing together a kit yourself. 4wd or 2wd? I'm not sure about the 2004 but I know on some of the older Dodges the splines on the transfer case for automatics and manuals are different... Navigate your way around:
