Bob (rwenzing) has one. You have to custom mold the console though for the tcase shifter. He doesn't have the manual tranny but he has the t-case.

I honestly can't think of anyone with a manual trans AND a manual tcase w/ the Explorer full length.

Here's TrePaul86's old truck...

Will these match up with the 94 style dash? I think it would even be cool just to have the part around the shifter with cup holders and have it meet with the 60\40 seats.

Why can't you do one with a body lift? I was thinking about doing this winter break with my manual.

Oh, well I don't have that set-up. He said just BL so I assumed he was talking about a 3 inch BL since that is what most people have. But, you know what they say when you assume....

A ranger manual case won't work with a full length console. You have to remember Bob is using a bigger transfer case to go with his 5.0L. The transfer case he's using is offset a lot more than the ranger's case is so he has room to fit it next to the console. You won't have that kind of room with the ranger's case.

Yea Rob, i ment to explain more.


3" bl w/ the PA shift extention w/ stock arm...the 'shift throws' are so long, that you'd be probably hitting the console in 2nd, 4th, and reverse. The amount of travel the shifter has is the issue. Now...a Hurst shifter with an extention between the arm and the pivot...should work just fine. I've been meaning to try this out for a while now.

I had a 3" BL, a shifter extension, and a full length console and it wasn't good. I hit in 2nd 4th and reverse. I had to bend the shifter extension forward to get it to clear, but then the shifter nearly missed the radio bezel. Overall it wasn't a good setup, but with no shifter extension, and no BL, it was acceptable.

Much better. If you have a manual trans dont get the side by side cup holders, get the one in front of the other, i had both, these are alot easier to use without the shifter in the way
