I vote manual T-case.
If you are doing a Cummins, just use the PCM you have. It will only control the cluster.
I recommend getting a manual trans hump.
I took my auto harness and chopped out the unneeded wires. You'll only need the T-case indicator, neutral safety and b/u circuits.

Early '99, 7.3/4R to Cummins 6.7/ZF6 CONVERSION, AIR LOCKERS, 4:11, 35", '05 HARLEY FRONT , TRAIL READY W/WARN.

Project20v, Can you point me to where you address the wiring for the ZF6 using the 5R harness? I am having some problem getting my truck to go into 4wd which I assume is due to the Neutral safety switch noting being addressed.

Thx 20v..I sent you a pm the other day..
I actually have a 6.7 at home so may be mirroring your swap..I don't really wanna hack anything and the 6.0 will reside under the hood until sold..so I need it to work like factory for a while
