Yes, it's possible - find a bronco with the same motor/manual drivetrain in it that you've got, and you're good to go. Or, if you're really technically inclined and have some bucks to spend you can get a custom adapter that'll mate just about any trans you want to the motor - same thing with a T-Case.....obviously though going that route will cost the most and require alot of custom fab/new D-shafts.

This past summer I swapped from an auto to a stick in my ranger - it honestly wasn't that bad. Took some time though - the biggest bitch for me was running the clutch line from the master to the trans as it's a special line from ford.

I'd find an old bronco/F150 with a NP435 and NP208 combo. Both very strong and you shouldnt have ANY problems finding one!!

All kinds of gears. What gears do you have now? You'll have to swap both front and rear gears and you probably already know but you do just incase you didn't know you do now.
