The first one....a '95
The 2nd one....a '94 SuperCab conversion
The 3rd one....a '93 SuperCab conversion. This one is a project and it is also the original Full Effect conversion. This one belonged to the owner of Full Effect, thus it's number zero of 15 known to be converted by the company.
The 4th one. Another '94 but this one has a Hurst shifter stickin' up outa the floor. The stick is attached to a TKO600 5-speed box. Yeah, it's fun !

scriced, do you have a write-up for the TKO conversion? That's my only complaint with the truck. I want to shift gears so bad...Welcome my son. Welcome to the machine...
Past toys: '03 GT CE Vert, '02 Wrangler, '01 Z06, '94 Lightning, '97 Cobra, '03 Cobra. And many other DD/slow cars...

Here's a link to a guy that did the conversion and did a decent job of documenting it with pictures. This guy put the shifter in the middle location on the trans and has a pic of it showing the location on the trans as well as a pic of the shifter in the truck.
5-speed Conversion Complete (long...lots of pics) - The National Lightning Owners Club Inc
I bought mine from a guy that did the conversion, it was the second one to be done of those that hang out at NLOC. The first one was done in southern Oregon and that person did all the R & D to get it to work. I still have his parts list that he used and I'll send ya that via PM.
There are some gaps here and there in both the install link and parts list so do a search on NLOC as well for 5 speed or manual transmission in the Gen 1 forum. That should give you enough reading for a bit and fill in some of the gaps.
That is one of my winter projects to change the shifter location to either the middle or back location on the trans. The forward most location is too far forward for me. Either of the rear locations are too far back and would require modifications to the seat frame to accommodate the shifter.

I'm actually a member over on NLOC. But it just seems like a bunch of nay-sayers for a manual conversion. "it's cost prohibitive" "the transmission won't last", blah blah blah. But I'll check it out. Thanks bro.

Just think heavy duty when selecting parts. It costs a bit and more Gen 1 owners than not won't or can't spend the bucks for serious changes.
It's already been done so that smoothes the way for you to do it if you so choose. KU engineer's thread is good for his approach to the job and his pics documenting.
I'm Skritch on NLOC and yet another name on LR. I'm left handed so I like to be different not keeping the same user name on all the boards, plus it can provide an interesting perspective sometimes as a "perceived noob".

I had the pleasure of driving one of these when I was about 15. It was black and all dented up and beat to hell but it still ran like a champ... I've wanted one ever since

I picked this 93 up yesterday. It's far from perfect but not too bad. There isn't any rust, the interior is pretty nice and the engine bay is clean. The only mod is a cat back. It originated in Oregon and moved here in 2005. I don't have any idea what # it is.
Has 99K miles.

This one came home in late October of 2012. One of two known to be converted to CrewCab configuration, one of one known to currently exist. This one done by Full Effect also. 224,000 miles on her. Have a LARGE list of repairs/upgrades/mods to keep me busy. What is REALLY nice is most all paperwork from all four owners came with the truck plus the magazine issue that featured the other CrewCab Lightning. This one is yet another 1994 Lightning for us making 3 '94's in our household now, and 3 white trucks; one in each length !

Scriced, you definatly have a one of a kind collection of L's. I've been keepin up with your progress on the other site. I knew a guy in hawaii that had a black extended cab, always wanted a extended cab after seeing/riding in his.
