There is really no easy way to do this. I'm not even sure it would work at all, to be honest with you. The 2.8 5-speed should bolt up but you'll be doing a lot of cutting, etc., to get it into the floor pan, etc. I'd consider just getting another vehicle with a standard shift if that's what you need.

Point Littlehorn is making... you must hang a clutch pedal... NOT just bolt the tranny in!
