    I'm going to make a guess that you haven't changed from a ScanGauge to a mechanical gauge to get the readings, but I wonder if the temp sender in the trans. needs to be replaced. Could the calibration be off after you cooked the trans before?

    i was actually just thinking about this, i wonder how hard it would be, i assume just adding a clutch pedal, clutch master cylinder, run the cable and bolt on the trans. Then reprogram the computer.

    Saying it that way makes it sound easy but you need to take into considerations so many things!
    Transfer case bolting up, front and rear drive shaft lengths, trans mounts and offcourse if the space exists for it in the trans tunnel. After that you will need the shifter to come up in the right place (or close to it) and then you are probably good to go. Tunning is actually the easiest part of it!

    oh im sure it will be a lot of work, the h3 did come with a manual trans, so i assume everything will theoretically "bolt in".

    The ar5 manual was for the I5. On the V8 would it hold? Esp since its rated at 260 ft.lb
    But you are right if someone wanted to instal that trans they can since it was there stock. Just need a bellhousing to have it mount on the V8.
    It does have deeper gears making it easier on the acceleration.

    What about going to a 6l80e in the manual? Is this even possible? It would be pretty fun to have a 6 speed manual.

    Im not sure but I believe all manual 6l80s came in 2wd.
    Now its possible to convert a 2wd auto to a 4wd, but the manual?
    Obviously you will have to do all the leg work. An auto 6l80e been done and documented, a manual not yet.

    Transfer case bolting up...
    Just need to make sure to get a 4WD tranny, that will take the H3 t-case adapter. Try looking around for a 2000-2006 5-speed from a 2500 Silverado 6.0L. Get the whole rig...bell, flywheel, gear-box, shifter, etc. I hear these are quite desirable and probably not cheap. (but probably cheaper than fartin around with an AT).

    front and rear drive shaft lengths...
    Weld, make, whatever.

    trans mounts...
    Weld, make, whatever.

    and of course if the space exists for it in the trans tunnel....
    Hammer, cut, weld, or all of the above.

    After that you will need the shifter to come up in the right place (or close to it)...
    Don't care. Make it work. (I think the GM tranny mentioned above is probably a closer match than a Dodge or Ford NV).

    Tuning is actually the easiest part of it!
    So true! There is no tuning! Just jump in and drive it. All of this stuff mentioned above is tangible. They're all real things that you can touch with your hands...cut, grind, weld, etc. As long as you got eyes, fab skills, and will power...you can do it. No custom software. No adapter blah blah. No custom input shafts. No half-bred mix-mash of trannies. No b.s. Just a straight up, old-fashioned, stick...so much more "swap friendly" than a late-model AT.

    lol it always sounds easy on the internet! If I do go manual I know it would be a project but I would pull through.

    Making a 1 ton rear end work with sensors:done

    Adapting 8 lug brakes to CJs kit:done

    Engine swap: done

    Sas: done

    So many things on that list sounded easy then you get to it...then you work on each issue one at a time and you come out on top!

    It just pisses me off because the trans has always been one of those perfect working pieces for me, it's the most common trans in the world. LS and 4l60e are probably one of the more common swaps around because they are reliable! Unless some yahoo screws up

    Since the h3 came with a manual to begin with i assume everything would pretty much bolt up or have bolt holes already existing etc! it would be pretty badass to see a swap done

    It drives me crazy when someone on the interwebs states that a manual swap in an H3 is totally doable because some people may go read that, buy the parts and think there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Yes, a factory aisin 5 speed is totally doable. a NV4500 is NOT totally doable, nor is 99% of manual transmissions out there due to the shifter tower coming up right in the middle of the firewall behind the dash.

    How do I know?? My last H3 was a 2006 adventure factory 5speed manual and after ruining the stock transmission by using it above and beyond its intended purpose I got a NV4500 out of a silverado and tried to go that route. I believe there are several threads on here that discuss the idea of a manual swap.

    I think that the TR6060 4x4 would be the only other manual transmission that would work: http://www.rsgear.com/products/off-r...-transmissions

    2006 Red H3 Adventure/ luxury- 37" iroks, HD tierods, steering rack kit, custom front IFS HP Dana 44 diff with Yukon zip locker, Np241 manual T-case, 6.0L VVT/ 6L90 swap

    2008 Black H3 Alpha- HD tierods, steering rack kit, Custom HD lower control arm bushing kit

    2007 Black H3 Luxury- 1.25" bodylift, elocker, 4:1 t-case, steering rack kit, custom front IFS HP Dana 50 diff with truetrac, 37" bfg km2, H3x 18" wheels

    2009 Black H3T base- custom front IFS HP Dana 44 diff with truetrac, 37" centennial trail hogs, H3x 18" wheels

    2008 White H3 Adventure

    I think we might have too many of these things now...

    your original trans took a ****ing beatingggggg, I remember you would always run super high temps and still just abuse the **** out of it.
