Corey (crosseyed cat) pointed me in this direction. Love the simplicity of it, seriously, why spend $300 on a shifter I would want to remove gates from when I can just spend $50 and add a gate? It's a short shift but you get used to it.

Are you running a solid linkage or cable? I picked up a winters shifter new for cheap but not 50 bucks cheap.

Solid. I didn't like the back and forth of the Winters or Art Carr shifters. I drove Jimmys and loved his jeep, but those gates made me batty.

Was it really the gates that made you batty? My plan is to remove 1/4-1/2 of the gates and radius the corners a bit and go from there.

Ok, battier. I would have removed all but 1, so this was the easier, less expensive way to go.

New upper links are done with new heims and beefier bolts. Joints in the old ones were toast. Brake line gets fixed tonite and then on to rerouting the air cleaner.

I dont know if you have ever looked into the actual horse power handling of the 4.8 to 6.0l engines but check it out type in hot rod magazine/ big bang theory then enjoy. I'm still drooling over the idea of putting boost to one of these engines, I think you should do it!

I don't need boost. It's not like I race it, a few comps but not really a speed thing. I'm good with where she sits. ......................for now
