Nope, gate shifter = auto

Look into an Art Carr, they make a very nice Gate Shifter. It will still work like a normal auto though unless you also convert to a manual valve body.

If you have a 4.0 then you have the 5R55E if you have the 3.0 its the 4R44E (I belive)

Here are some examples of Gate Shifters...




Here's the linkage on a C4
