so, come to find out, GM didn't ever put a manual tranny behind their newer 5.3L V8 truck engine, so advanced adapters just happens to make a clutch kit with flywheel for that motor to an SM465 input shaft....only catch is it'll run you $525ish....

Edit: i was wrong...it's $586 ! ! ! !

Instead....we're gonna run the 700R4 instead of the four speed....won't have as nice of a crawl ratio....but it'll still be sweet...anybody got a shifter for me? Like floor mount?

HHmmm...my problem is getting a flywheel....the thought of an auto in a crawler is appealing to me....i was gonna run the 4 speed cause it's what my wife wanted...but she can drive my truck when she wants to play with a stick :)

My new quest is for the best floor shifter...for minimal cost...i think i might end up with one out of a 98 camaro...cable driven...i'll have to fab up some brackets....but big deal...

Good choice. A longer cable will let you put it up high, and if you remove the locking pin, you can shift without the button.

Yeah, but i can't decide if that's a good idea or not...removing the locking pin...i mean i'd hate to bump it....and the locking pin will only hold it from going from drive into reverse i think (with that shifter)and prolby keep you from OD to 3, 2, or 1...so push it from park to 1st...then you can slide it up and down from 1 - 3 then when you hit OD you have to hit the button for reverse...or back to 1
