Isn't Hurst the only option? The FX4 shifter looks nice but it uses the stock "shift linkage" so the only thing you're gaining is a nice handle.

No....

You need to look at the "3" bodylift extravaganza" thread at the top of the Body Lift section. I wrote an artical on Hurst's and BL's and it's in the first post of that thread. The Hurst replaces the entire shift mechanism.

exactly. but the nice part about a hurst is that u can make it to your height likeing because of the design since all u need is a flat piece of metal cut and 2 more bolts.....cuz short armed people like me prefer to stay in their seats trying to shift into 3rd lol
