Why did you opt for the auto?

Triple88a i donno i like the round knobs instead of the t handles better. For me its more comfortable.

potatobill hey trip, yeah the thread adapter i guess would be a better name. thanks

Triple88a what do you mean the stick? you mean the thread size?

No idea but most shifters come with those plastic inserts that you forcefully tighten on the shifter and then slide the knob over and then tighten some setscrews that hold it. At first i thought what is this crappy thing. Well now i take it all back. Mine is very stable.

potatobill what size is the stick? I want to replace my knob and dont know what size insert I need.

Triple88a There is a gasket that goes on the "bottom" of the stock shifter while for the B&M you use RTV or whatever that liquid gasket stuff was.

Dry Fit to make sure it fits before you glue anything.

Notice the 3" extension?
04-20-2008 12:59 PM
Triple88a I'm very happy with it because now with the short shifter and my 3" extension i dont have a 80" stroke from first to second gear lol

I have a 2" bl and 1" tcase drop so my shifter went down 3" from the stock position, thats why i have to use an extension to keep it located where the stock level was.

I loved the short stroke of it before i had the extension but it even now its still better than it was stock.

Again i'm very happy with the short throw

here you go dude some install pics

Main reason why i replaced it at the time i did.

4.0l sahara Thanks.

[TheYJGuy] ^^^Thats the auto^^^

and the manual short throw...

and the factory shifter with the B&M handle...

I'm not a fan of the short throw shifters, or automatics, but the t-handle was worth the $10 I paid for it. It was nice, but I still prefer the factory knob.

(its more of a console shot, but I don't have a Jeep on hand to take a new pic)
