Hurst!

Hmmmm.......What is this?

Oh yeah, HURST! I love it! Simple to install. Thanks to daranger94 for selling it! I actually had more time in reinstalling the console than i did installing the shifter. took me about 15 minutes to put it in, and another 30 minutes to put the console back in. the shape of the shifter make it difficult to slide a console brace between the shifter and the dash. i finally got it in, then found the shifter arm hits a different brace in 1, 3, and 5th gears. so i knocked it out for now, and will fix it when i recover the console. I think i'm also going to make an adapter to move the shifter back about 1.5". It's just a little too close to the dash for me.

I also just bought a pistol grip **** and a "hurst equipped" emblem. I got both of those for $33. The **** alone is $75 from jegs or summit. got to love ebay.

here are a few more pics of it with the console back in.

when i recover the console, i will probably make the boot not come up so high so you see more of the arm.

my entire dash has been wrapped in vinyl, with some suede parts here and there.

Got the pistol grip handle in. Also got an emblem. I think it will look better on the stepside below a "ranger" emblem. Hoping that will be soon.

How does the pistol grip shifter feel? I was worried about trying it because in a ranger your so much higher than the shifter, as opposed to a mustang or somethign where you are more level with teh shifter...

Haven't gotten to drive it yet LOL. with the ball, it felt a little low. but i think this is going to be good. I still need to move the shifter back about an inch and a half.

driven it yet? how's the pistol grip feel?
And make a bracket like the bodylift guys do to move the arm back. pretty easy to do. I am sure you can do it, otherwise, i'd gladly make you one....

yeah, been driving it daily since that post. It's a little odd with how the console is shaped, but i bet it would be a lot better with an ex console. I've gotten used to the location as well. when i do the console again, i'll probably move it back. but for now, it's fine.
