RC Straight Lower Gear Selector
 
Has anybody used one of these? I currently have a T-Case drop and don't see the SYE happening in the near future. Looks like a good solution to a common problem but I am new to all this so am looking for opinions from the experts.

How much lift are you going to be running?

How deep is your t-case drop & what kind of shifting problems are you having you believe will be fixed by that?

Or you can save 60 bucks, and pull yours out, heat and bend until you like it. That's what I did.;) If something changes, pull it back out and redo it.

The shifter, or at least the boot, hits the console. 2nd, 4th, and reverse are pretty tight in comparison to the rest. I already rebuilt this transmission and am a but paranoid about damaging this one prematurely.

I don't have the tools and the idea would be to use this as a temporary relief until the SYE and short throw shifter.

I'm already running a 4" lift with a t-case drop.

When I had my 1 1/2" tc drop still on, what was making mine bind was the foam tube around the shift lever (under the boot). I got rid of the foam tube, and it shifted fine. YMMV. I'v heard that on some it actually hits the tub a little .... mine didn't.

I would save that money for a b&m short throw. I absolutely love mine. Just shop around amazon,eBay,ect. and you can find a good price.

That would make the wife happy too. She doesn't drive it because the throw is too long.
