Is this even possible?

I was just wondering if i can get a manual in my 95 GC Laredo. My friend said he's een it done before but the only jeeps i've seen with sticks are wranglers. I was wondering if the transmission from a durago might work. If i'm not mistaken they have a 5.2 and a 5.9 V8. If this is possible ot anyone knows anythign that would help me out please let me know.

93 ZJ's had a manual tranny. Find one and do a swap.

93 is the only year that you could get one with a stick.I think it was only offered in the I-6, but I could be wrong.

yup early model I6's were the ONLY ones to have a manual, good luck swaping the tranny, you would be better off buying a CJ with a 3sp and V8.
