There where a few extended cabs that came with manual trannies as far as what tranny to use is really up to you all you need for a swap would be the pedals and the hydraulic clutch setup any 88 to 98 setup will work and decide what tranny. The NV4500 5 speed is the heavy duty one ton expensive though. You could run the old sm465 easy to find fairly inexpensive. Lots of sites with info on different trannies

The only thing to remember is there is a difference between 2wd and 4wd, the tranny from behind a 305 is usually an NV3500 half ton tranny depending on the use it's not a bad tranny. Just punch in NV 3500 or NV4500 on your computer and it will give you a ton of info. Hope that helps
