hurst shifter review

just put in my hurst shifter a few days ago. the install was very easy and straight forward. at first it leaked a little tranny fluid, so i called wayne at underdog performance. he told me to put a litte rtv around the seal and the base. works great now!!!!!! no leaks what-so-ever!!!! the springs in it are a little tight but i'm sure they will loosen up after a few weeks of driving. the one thing i noticed is that there is no extra noise at all with this shifter like alot of people have said. it is as quiet as the stock shifter. i did not use any sound deadning material, just bolted it in. all in all its a great product and i'm glad i got it! also the customer service from wayne is great. i've bought a few things from him in the last couple of weeks and look forward to buying more!

you know i put it on cause i didn't measue from the right point and it didn't feel like it was shifting quite right so when i talked to wayne he said that it was usually only used for late model rangers and that i shouldn't need i. so i took out the shifter and remeasured it and he was right i didn't need it! don't know about using it with a body lift, but if you did you would definatly need wayne's shifter lifter!!!! its really almost too short for a stock truck!

Michael, there is no hitting with a body lift and a hurst. It functions fine, it just shrinks it another 3" lower to the floor.

If you look at the shifter lifter, it's something a guy could make himself. I made one 5" tall. 3" to make up for the bodylift and another 2" just to give me a little height.
Tyler is correct, the Hurst is lower than the stock shifter. Another 2" is about perfect.

You would have to fab something up, Wayne sells one as well on his site.

i like mine, i felt the **** was a little bit of a reach for me so i got a connector for 3/8" all-thread and a small piece of all-thread to extend my **** up about 2". works good, i dont feel like im streaching forward to reach 1st,3rd or 5th. ive had my hurst for a little over a year now, it did loosen up a little. i used loctite at installation and havent had any problems with bolts backing out.

I thought I read somewhere that the tranny fluid leaking was only on older trucks?

I have a 1998 XLT with the bucket seats, will the Hurst hit my center console?
This looks like a pretty sick mod and I cant wait to do it. Is there another lever to fit if this one wont????
Thanks guys
(and for the old-timers, by sick I mean good or radical)
