It's very rare to convert a 62 to a manual tranny, and I haven't seen much or heard much from my friends on details. I'm assuming that the t-case that goes behind the A440F is not a bolt up to the H55F. If it is, then another place to look would be to regear the diffs, as far as cost/benefit. Part of the calculus to that decision is what size tires you plan to run.
I've been out of that loop for a short time but I believe the 203 reduction box is only a viable option with a GM transmission.
Groucho has done the H55/FJ-62 swap...ask him about details if needed!
