There were two different shifter stubs used in the Mazda transmissions. The first was used up until the late 90's on the M5OD-R1 transmissions. The M5OD-R1HD transmissions like yours were given a different shifter stub.
Since you have an 08, it doesn't really matter because you have the HD trans. If you had say a 98 Ranger, you would have to figure out which transmission you have.
With that being said however, I think the shifter extension that Performance Accessories sells is usable on both of the shifter stubs. There are extra slots drilled into it that I think allow you to run it either way.
Here's a picture from TRS that shows the different stubs.
