Thanks for the info. It is the hurst billet shifter, I am getting more used to it, so it's not so bad now. I really like the feel of the short throw, it is stiff (so to speak) but the shifts are going better now. Like I said 4th has a tough place in it if you don't hit it just right.
I don't remember now if the guy was selling it as an edge or if I assumed it was because of the looks. Thanks for letting me know, I looked up when the edge came in and you're right it wasn't in 99, it was 01. Is anyone getting the 29mpg they claimed? This one's getting 22 mpg. I'm pretty amazed at how well this thing hugs the road/curves. For a truck it's a real pleasure to drive (the 200 watt speakers don't hurt either....).
This truck came with a custom grill, fog lights, oversized tires, bed cover, 4x4, xlt pkg. So maybe I just assumed it was an edge.
anyway, thanks again.
