I have been fighting Novak for like a month now trying to get my broken cable shifter replaced with no luck. I can't see myself ordering from them again anymore

Moab 4x4 outpost has a really nice shifter. Bummer is their website store looks to be under repair.

@bearlys2005 just put one in his jeep. Maybe he'll post a pic or two.

I had Novak for a while, too. They fell apart. Probably great for a street only cruiser, but not for a wheeling rig.

the lever arm off the engine is too long. The bushing should be tight to the block with the mounts coming high off the frame. Those bolts will always come loose, that bushing will be stressed, and it wouldn't surprise be if it overloads the threads on the block.

Under jeep tj application the lever arm would be wayyy shorter. That was just some random picture I found online to show the idea I was thinking of.

Edit: the other ways of this style I have seen is with the bushing on the engine side and not the frame side like shown

Made some super ghetto solid motor mounts today. I cut up a old link bar and my Rubicon express mounts.
