Only during my racing days back in the 70's. Why would you need one in a jeep.

Retired my 94 YJ 4cyl 5spd @ 200K
Now in a 04 TJ 4cyl 5spd CV @120K+
Both as a commuter vehicle in NW, NJ
April 2012.downsized and now a 99er.

B&M and Hurst are the same company now, or at least one is owned by the other. Other than their names, their products are pretty much identical. For a manual transmission, they are mainly just for looks since they really don't help shifting since there is no external shift linkage to be improved upon. For an automatic transmission, DON'T DO IT!! I installed a B&M onto the automatic transmission I converted my TJ to and I hate its crappy overly stiff shifting. Not to mention the nightmare installation it turned out to be.
When you have a choice, buy American.

I have the Hurst T shifter in my 02 TJ (manual). Really don't see how one could be better than the other, my advice would be to pull it out of the box and grip it to see which is more comfortable. I think the Hurst has a comfortable, natural grip and looks pretty cool myself.
