i left the column shifter on, just disconnected the linkage to it..... one of these days ill remove it and put a column from a manual transmisson truck on it....

the shifter is a B&M pro stick. it came with a cover but it looked stupid so i left it bare.

other than ur the site mental patient i dunno why u would swap columns. u could just pop out the roll pin, remove the stock shifter arm and and then cut off the "knub" thats left. then just weld in a plate to cover it or something like that. thats what ill eventually do.
hows the fit and placement on the b&m? not too far of a reach?

im 5'10 and it sits perfect for me... you can mount it damn near anywhere since its cable operated... now if only i could reach the transfer case shifter....

the truck is twice as much fun to drive.... specially at a redlight because you can shift into first and the lockout mechanism is designed to only allow one shift at a time, so you can just bang the shifter into second and then to third like a race car. really scares your passengers.


took about a half hour to install it, mainly because you dont have to wire up the reverse and neutral saftey switch to it.... our good friends at dodge were smart and put them on the transmission and not the column....
