auto trans ?

My 1980 cj7 has a auto trans column shift, It will not shift in gear with out the key turned on. If i replace it with a floor shifter like Hurst , B&M ext. Will it shift any time with or without the key being on? I don't think that would safe if it works that way.

All after market shifters have provisions for a neutral safety switch to be attached.
Same as your column shift, if the vehicle isn't in park or neutral, the starter won't crank.

Many of the after market shifters also have provision for locking the shifter in park when the key is turned off, but usually only for vehicles that have 'floor' shifters from the factory.
There are kits to install them, but I'm not sure it's worth the trouble since you can't start one in gear...

If you're mechanically inclined you can go to the junk yard and get everything you need for a fraction of the cost.. (providing that you have decent yards that way).
