    Floor shifter

    I'm going to put one of these in my '89. This picture is the 23" version, the 32" is cheaper so I'm getting that most likely :evil:



    Think it will fit ok? My seats are mounted all the way back, permanately (they don't move).

    Wait until 91LTD installs his tailmount shifter, base your purchase on whatever he finds out about locating the shifter.

          Before you purchase that, let me get you a picture of my 16" handle. It comes up to the top of the A/C controls. Take off 4" because yours would be mounted lower (a bit), then add 16" to that and you have a 28" handle. That's going to come up above the dash. Take a yard stick and measure 32" from your floorboard, minus a couple inches for it to reach down to your transmission. That's fawking huge.
          I think my 16" shifter is just right.

              I figure that... if that's what he wants, he'll get it. It'll be bad ass, in my opinion, for the nostalgia... but I don't like it myself. Just figured I'd put out the warning.

                Yes, of course that's what I'm going for. :evil:

                32" may end up being too much, got to be able to use the knob afterall, to push the button.

                  Lokar= quality. Tailmount installation = bolting the thing to the tail housing w the 2 horzontal rear facing bolts at the top rear (get replaced w/ Lokar bolts). Looks like it sits on the tranny more or less exactly where the one you have pictured. The bracket for the tailmount is reversible, giving you an alt. mounting position and the whole thing also can be tilted/ adjusted front and back.

                  I went w/ a 10" shifter that looks like it will sit w/ the shift knob just over the edge of the front seats.

                  Will be doccumenting the install w/ pics and a thread.

                  1st step will be to get under car and determine bolt position in relation to the interior then Im gonna "cut" the whole w/ a drill (holes in a circle, connect the dots).

                    I must be the only person on here that absolutely cringes at the concept of a floor shifter on an automatic in anything but a car with bucket seats and a center console. Me likes my column shifter.

                      I do have buckets! And I have a console, universal indeed, but it won't take much to make it house the shifter nicely and look presentable.

                      About the column shifter - I'm so used to mine that yesterday I tried shifting my friend's '98 Cherokee 4.0 with the wipers switch lever

                        If I did't have 50/50 benches in my cars I'd throw a fuckin console shifter in. Drock96's GM makes me drool.
