Since this thread, i've installed a bodylift using the PA extention. It is awkward. IF the cupholders are left in the factory location, there must be trimming made to the floor and possibly the cupholder EVEN with the extention. OR......the base of the shifter arm needs to be heated a little and pitch the ball forward a little. give the base a little bend. OR...slide back that cupholder console until it shifts perfect in each gear w/o any resistance of the boot or cupholder thing and put in new screws and holes into the floor pan. Essencially, you'd be moving the cupholder back about 1.5".
shifter arm throws are longer with the extention installed.

The Hurst IMO is the BEST way around this whole PA BL shifter crap. You dont even need anything. just your ball will be 3" lower than normal. No mods or anything needed.
Here's what i did with mine to make the shifter fit me PERFECTLY. I first made a bracket. moved the ball 1" up, 1 1/8" back, and 1/4" left. I made that with the 1" bl...to get the ball perfect. Then i put the 3" bl on it. the ball interferred with the beverage in the center console...and started to get uncomfortable for me. SO...i then made a new bracket. moved the ball 2 1/2" up, 1 1/8" back, 1/4" left. It's perfect and now i have a mounted center console.
