HAHAHAHA what a donkey punch

what else can we say? Are you that set on the body lift? If not you could take it out and see if you can return it or sell it on ebay or something and put the money towards some 30s or 31s and wheel it stock.

Bashing a guy because he's running a 3" BL won't help solve the problem he's having. Let's keep this on point and tech related. Stop flaming.

No one is bashing just giving our opinions on what we would do...

instead of moving the console and all that good stuff maybe it would be possible to find a whole new shifter thats not too expensive

one with a different angle, know what i mean?

They do make some short throw shifters, I know B&M does, and also Hurst. They aren't shorter length wise, but like Fox said, they are different angles.

I read somewhere that they shorten the throw by about half. It also cleans up the shift.

So there's another option, but if you are running low on cash-flow, it'd be kinda rough dishing out the money for one Rolling Eyes

Ya guys to let you know I finished the lift tonight. The shifter isnt hitting anything after I took off the foam thats around it, and in time when I actually have some spare money I'll most likely invest in a short shift. And I didnt end up moving the console back. I also already have 31x10.5 with aftermarket rims on my car just to let you know.

O ya has anyone ever rotated the shifter 90 degrees to move it more into the middle of the shifter hole? Just wondering cause a buddy of mine did that on one of his cars and I didnt know if I could do it in a jeep just to make sure.

I don't know if 90 degrees will cut it....it would either point the shifter to the left or right....very odd...I'd rotate 180 degrees if I could in that situation. But then it might hit the dash. Rolling Eyes


Am I reading right? is that what you meant?

again do you plan to go suspension lift? because investing in the short throw shifter will definitely take a good hunk of that money you have towards it...since it works now as is id run it while saving up for a suspension lift, trust me you will be very pleased with it over the body lift

I'm workin on the suspension lift gimme some time and ull be the first one i let know that i bought one. Whatever I do to the shirfter wont cost anything, but moving it 180 i think will most likely put me in the dash.

The height isnt the thing that matters, right now I actually like the height, but it leans further towards the passenger side than the drivers(it always has) but I was just wondering while I was doing everything if I could position it more towards the drivers side?

It isn't going to ride any different. You installed a body lift.
