cool thanks.. when you say adapter plate.. would tht be somthing thats aftermarket or is that what would have been bolted up to the orignal set up that im getting the trans from? basically im getting everything i need from an auto dismount... petals, trans, bellhousing, drivelines, exexe bla bla bla. So it would save me a pretty bug chunk of change if i could just use my stock t case
the adapter plate i refered to is the engine to trans mount. the cummins is a universal engine and the aluminum plate between the trans and engine can be changed to fit almost any transmission on the market. i think all the dodge transmissions use the same bell housing bolt patern though but i could be wrong. im pretty sure its all the same from 94-07. but the g56 might be the one thats not the same.
your stock transfercase has a differnet input than the manual, wont just bolt up at least when i did the swap, the trans crosmember is the same, and the bellhousing is the same fairly straight forward swap just bolt it in and go kinda deal, the rear driveline works but the front will have to be modified by the way,
I got a different case with the trans, im sure it would be easy to swap the shaft in it though never done one so not positive, plus you might have troubles with the ecm/pcm in it they will kinda freak out with the swap some get away with it I didn't. I have a gage cluster for a manual truck if you decide to swap the pcm mine wouldn't communicate with it so I had to go auto ( I swapped manual to auto)
ill second what stang said, the output shafts are different from the auto to the manuals. easiest thing to do is swap the t-case input. your drive shafts will need cut also. one needs lengthened, the other shortened
