I'm sure there won't be any problems as the kits are not designated for either auto or manual transmissions. I know a number of folks have put a bl on their trucks with the 5 speed and never said they had problems.

You may notice your shifter looking a little shorter but other than that ,won't hurt a thing.

most of the kits I have seen for my first gen, come with a 4x4 shifter entension piece you have to weld on. You also have to cut the floor a bit to be able to shift completely into gear. Not sure which gen you have though
