if you can't drive with a regular shifter, you definately can't drive with a short throw...

Well the hurst also cleans up the shifting more than anything. It gets rid of the sloppy play in the shifter and makes things very positive and precise. But I detailed exactly what is required to swap to the newer style in my previous post. It will require swapping the entire top cover of the transmission over to the newer style, it is only 10 bolts however you can't get the top cover off with the tranny in the truck. The newer stub shaft IS longer than your's and will not sit correctly in your transmission top cover.
