Short Throw Shifter

I have a 2000 TJ and I want to get a short throw for it but I was wodering that since I have a three inc body lift if I could still get it. I was thinking abou getting the B&M short throw. Anybody know if I could get it or not?

Re: Short Throw Shifter

i would think that actualy it would be better? the problem with body lift/ shifter is related to the amount of throw being to long. therfor if its now a shorter throw i would imagine that that problem wouldnt be as much of an issue?


im sure some one else can realy help from experiance but ill give ya my best guess.

Re: Short Throw Shifter

You may try looking in a JUNK yard for and shifter from a honda civic I bet ya can even get one will a chrome skull and red eyes!!! All joking aside I feel the TJ shifter is already pretty short but if your having problems hitting the tub then I would bring out the snips instead of my wallet [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] but thats just me..... I am cheap!!!

Pog, the short throw shifter doesn't get it's shorter throw from a shorter shifter. The pivot is moved.
