Hurst Shifters

Looking for any feedback on the Hurst or B&M shifters on a T5 trans vs the stock shifter. Worth the Bucks?
Any noticeble improvement?

Re: Hurst Shifters

The key point here is T5 tranny.....and the key answer is "Don't waste your money"!

The T5 is a good medium transmission...but changing shifters will do nothing for you....it's kinda like using Monster speaker wires on a stock radio.....well, actually, using Monster wire on any radio is a waste of money...

If you want to spend money....do gears.....

Re: Hurst Shifters

What's the reason for a Hurst shifter? Faster/firmer shifting is the usual reason.

This just ain't gonna cut it in a Jeep. At most improvement would be opinion. If you're having hard shifting I'd be looking at wear in the dogs or **** tower assembly. Fix that and it's good to go. Otherwise, you'll be pouring money down a rat-hole.

Re: Hurst Shifters

"**** tower assembly"

That's been my problem several times. I don't know that Hurst can help me with it, though.

Re: Hurst Shifters

What exactly is the "Shift (****)tower" assembly?
The part that bolts to the top of the transmission?

Re: Hurst Shifters

i dont mean to hijack this thread, but my t-5 shifter is horrible as well, way too loose and sloppy. the tranny shifts great, it was just rebuilt.
can you rebuild the shift tower?

Re: Hurst Shifters

I have the Hurst shifter upgrade and very happy with it! My T-5 transmission works perfect if you do not abused and add added h.p. to it. My original T-5 shift lever was disintegrating, in fact, it would come off if you lifted the shift handle. After adding the Hurst unit, it became much easier and quicker to go through the gears. If your going to keep the T-5 you will be very happy with this upgrade. But granted, its a little pricy, but it works as advertised!
