Both. The link to it is somewhere in the last 6 or 7 pages. Its a simple $49 piece. Seeing as we took the console part from the stock shifter out this one sat right on the floor. Kevin doubled the length so it is the perfect height for me and he built the base. I liked it because there are no gates and no buttons, not to mention the low cast. I will see how well it works and if I feel I want a gate between reverse and park it can always be added.

Becky,
I think you will want a gate between Park and Reverse. When you need to get back down off something quickly, you don't want to be catching Park and being locked in position.

just my .02

Tranny lines and cooler all set. Starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Still to do:

hook misc. wires (stereo) back up.
hood pins
engine skid
drop off at exhaust shop
build up bump stops

Wow, that can't be all.......been a long winter of ordering parts. Sure can't wait to finally go play.

Maybe so Collin! You've got a very hard working, determined crew working on yours for sure.

First scheduled trip for mine is weekend of the 15th. I'll see you and your rig at the Blessing.

In Muskegon. Having Kevin drop it off at Special T's. They got quite a few votes when I asked about a shop on that side. Just easier then back and forth
