    Search for a member SafetyDang. He swapped his double cab auto for a manual. And he's all smart and stuff too.

    Tranny, r151, including everything..

    Master cylinder
    Slave cylinder
    Clutch pedal and all parts
    And most importantly a new ECU that's for a manual.
    Either new harness or custom hack your current one.
    New center console..

    Think that would be the basics..

    I'm not sure on drive shafts or transfer case.

    My best advice its to save for a doner Tacoma. Part out what you don't need and do your swap. After doing the swap I spent the same amount I would have if I bought a wrecked rig. Mind you I did also do a 4x4 conversion at the same time. On to of that I also bought after market parts here and there.

    Good luck with your swap.
