Figured I would have to do something like that... Thanks for the tip bud

Also, you may want to remove the set screws that help prevent from moving the shifter too far. Had mine rattle loose on a road trip and couldn't shift into 2nd or 4th

Oh hai other moderator.

x2 on the set screws, my shift lever rattles pretty loudly when I'm in 4th. I need to back the rear set screw out and see if that solves it.

I still have mine installed, I just need to back the rear most one out a little so it the shift lever isn't hitting it in fourth and I think I'll be fine. It doesn't make rattle in 3rd. Sounds like Jacob completely removed his. It's up to you. I don't know how much they really matter on these trucks.
