I have the opportunity to get an 02 explorer with a bad automatic trans. I've always preferred manuals, so of course the logical progression was to start planning a manual swap. The engine is a 4.6, so I'm assuming late 90's f150 for a donor trans. I'm guessing an xcal or similar could take care of the engine side of things, trouble codes and such. The big question though, where would I get the right pedals for this setup? Also, shifter and bezel and interior pieces?

2002 is quite a bit different than 2001. That's when they changed body styles, changed to irs, switched from 5.0 to 4.6, etc. Supposedly there was a manual trans available in 02, but not after, so that stuff is pretty tough to come by...
