Here's the finished shifter. Re used the stock console. Very happy with how this turned out.

im willing to bet it will be an expensive mistake bouncing around you will hit the shifter and knock it into reverse. id put a gate in the neutral slot so you cannt go past it either way.

just my .02

Signed up for all 4 Twisted races....may not make the first, depends on $$$. This build was more costly then expected because the parts were from diff donor vehicles. Hoping to make it.... we will see. DEFINITLY will be at the next 3 if not. See you there????

I will prob put a gate between park and reverse at some point. I won't be putting any more then that in. Keep in mind, this is no diff then how it's been for the last 2 years with the stock shifter. I didn't have any issues with "bumping" it into reverse then, can't see why that would be an issue now. I actually want to be able to slam it straight to reverse from 1st if I need to back off of something with a quickness (without hitting park tho).

I've been running zero gates between drive and reverse for quite some time. Never an issue. I won't go back. Keep your hands off the shifter unless you think you will need to shift.

Well the little shit is pretty much handled (stereo, winch, battery). Skids getting started as I type. Can't believe it's almost time to take this thing out and play....feel like a kid at Christmas!

She actually made it out of the garage today. Exhaust Tuesday and I believe we are done with this phase.
