    I run a polar shifter. I like it simple easy to use and looks period really. Had a hurst v-matic before that. It was a pain to use. And once a season it would puke its guts out inside its console. Springs and clips all over. Vmatic was with a th350 lokar is on a 2004r.

    I ended up buying the TCI fast gate shifter It’s simple, very inexpensive and has good reviews. I just hope it doesn’t look out of place in my car.

    Well the shifter install wasn’t too bad. I got it done yesterday in about 5 hours I’d say. A couple things were a pain but all in all it works perfect. I will have to get a couple installed pics.

    Getting my hands between the tunnel and the transmission to put the nuts on and tighten them was a pain. That was the worst of it. But it came out good. I also installed a set of brackets to move the bench seat back 2”. So much better with the extra leg room

    Here’s the shifter installed. Its not as close to the dash as the pictures seem. And the shift kit goes in real soon. Then it’s basically done.
