Short Throw Shifter on 4 Banger

Howdy All,

Just want to share with you all my experiences with a B&M Short Throw shifter for the 2.5 liter engine and the AX-5 tranny. Although the directions states that it will fit, it will not. Jeep in question is a 99 TJ. I ordered the shifter, part number 45046, which states for a 2.5 and an AX-5 tranny. Once you get to step 8, it it obvious that it does not fit nor will it be able to be adapted to fit (spacer to tranny).

I spoke to B&M about this, and they were very helpful. Unfortunately, since the AX-5 changed with the different models (according to B&M) they have discontinued the 2.5 Short Throw Shifter.

I know many on this board swear by them, which enticed me to purchase mine. However, if you have the 2.5, I would think twice about purchasing one unless you can purchase it locally.

Just my observations.

Once I get a new shifter, any one wanna hit Big Bear this weekend?
99 SE with less than 43K on the clock and a few mods......

got mine to fit just fine. there is a spacer that comes with the shifter and it will be obvious where it goes. post up some pics and maybe we can help.
Keepin the peace.

The difference between sport and combat is that in combat you bury the one who comes in second.
