I think I am going to need to replace my trans soon. It makes a great deal of sound in all the forward gears except 4. It also makes a lot of noise parked in neutral idleling. I have had this trans rebuilt before and wondered where/if I could get a 6 spd for it and how much if any mods I will have to make to get one.
What is a good aftermarket trans.

I've never heard of any 6-speed, manual transmission options for VG engines. I think the only way you are going to get one is to swap in a VQ engine, which is a whole lot of work and expense. Even a "new" 5-speed transmission may not be a possibility. There is nothing "new" on the aftermarket, although you may be able to find rebuilt or remanufactured units. Nissan does have a limited number of manual transmissions, but it'll depend on what body truck and drivetrain you have to determine if one is still available for your particular truck. They run about $2300 +/- plus tax. From a cost practicality standpoint, rebuilding your current trans or finding a good one in a salvage yard might be better options.
