i am sorry but what kind of answer is that ? Maybe he can't afford a suspension lift. Are you going to loan him $1,000 to get one ?

I would assume they make and extension for the manual T-case shifter just like they do for the manual trannys.

to answer the question, no. There are extenders for all of the shafts and pipes, etc... That is, the performance accessories one. But if you can afford it, a suspension lift would be 10x better. Most suspension kits are relatively affordable for that year truck. Check online.

When I got my BL all I needed was the shift extension and the rest of the ones needed the kit came with.

I had a hell of a problem shifting between 2H to 4H in my BL'd '85 Yodr. Just a thought.
