Where there's a will, there's a way. That's going to be a lot of work though, messing with the shifter linkage. You'll be buying a lot more parts than just the console. I'm a mechanic and it gives me a headache thinking about it.

Better off taking the hit on trading it in and getting the one you want. Sounds like a pricy upgrade.

If you can get a crash diagram of your current set up and a diagram of the one you want you will have a better understanding of what you are in for. The shifter linkage may not be too bad but you still have other wires to route.

It's very do-able. A lot of 4th gen cummins folks do it since it is not a factory option to get a 2500/3500 with a console shift. The console is going to be the most expensive part, the linkage and wiring for the manual shift is fairly simple and straight forward if I remember reading correctly..

It's been done and it is not easy or cheap. As for finding info on it, you have to just search around through different sources as there's no one repository of this specific information.
