simple as selling your truck and buying a new one.

Seriously plenty of guys would much rather have a stick.

I'm sure it can be done, but it would take a lot of work and money. Things that would need changed are transmission, ecu, trans wiring, crossmember, flywheel, pedal assembly, some sort of shifter. Not sure if yours is 4x4 or 4x2 either which could make a difference for drive shafts too.
