I just converted my 2001 AC Tundra to a manual transmission and thought I’d share the project here. When I decided to do this there was no information about anyone else doing this so hopefully this will help others who are thinking about making the swap.
Here are a some pictures and basic truck specs to get started. I’ll be working on a build thread soon to show how I did everything.

Basic specs:

2001 SR5 Access Cab Toyota Tundra w/ 2UZ-FE V8
2.5” OME / Icon racing suspension lift
SPC adjustable upper control arms
BFG KM3 305/70R16 mud tires
SCS 16x8 wheels with 3.5” back spacing
Custom built rock sliders
Custom built low profile roof top tent rack
Smittybuilt XL roof top tent
5speed R150F manual transmission
J-shift manual transfer case

This is awesome. I definitely wanna see the build thread when you make it. I wonder if the factory transfer case would work. I have the electronic shift case.

Anyway, looking forward to a build thread for if my auto ever dies. I plan on putting a manual in my Durango whenever funds are available and I have space to work.

I am using a factory Toyota transfer case. It’s actually the same same exact transfer case that the v8 had but it is setup with a top manual top shifter instead of an electronic actuator.

Even better. Well I’ll keep an eye out for a build thread. Can’t wait to see how everything went

This is awesome. I’m looking to do the same thing. I was told that manual wouldn’t hold up on the V8. Only the V6. Nice job btw. How’s it driving?
