I would be willing to bet the cost would be easily over $4000 for parts and labor. Hey, it's only money.
Do you REALLY want to change that transmission ?
I have the regular old six speed in mine and it works great.
WOW! Dumbest thing I read all week. GOOD JOB.
The select shift system as I understand it is merely the availability of different selectable algorithms. It involves no hardware changes, other than a different gear selector, and different software. It is possible that the different shifter is plug-and-play, and that it will activate the select shift feature. Or maybe you will need the option enabled in the truck software, if it is a possibility. I would give the service manager at your local dealer a call.
