Got on the lathe today and made me an adapter for my new knob then chopped the stick so it would fit.

my shifter knob keeps hitting my consule. i would just changed the knob but i cant get it to screw off.. idk what the person who owned it b4 me did to it but my other solution is to heat up the bend of the stick and just bend it to where it wont hit anymore?

this all changed after my 4' lift. i understand there is a link or plate i can buy but i dont want to spend money buying one of those

Does this change up your throws while shifting? Like is it a lot different/harder/easier than the regular ball? I'm assuming you'd just get used to it.

Yes you can heat and bend the bar. I may do mine a little bit. My 3rd and 5th gear is a lil far to reach.

honesty I like it better. I feels "lighter" to me, 3rd and 5th are a lil far to reach, but are do able. I am gonna heat up the bar and bend it a little towards me, but not too much bc then 2nd and 3rd would be at my side lol.


If ya'll are so interested in this, I am more than welcome to start making them and selling them. Let me know what ya'll think and I will post an add in the for sale side....

Gotta love that shifter :thumb:

I had to add to mine after the body lift, and bent it by heating it up with an acetelyne torch. Works perfect.The pics are in the neutral position sorry for the quality, I took them with my phone the next day. I really like the shifter as high as it is
