    A little too much side pressure to the right coming out of 5th and you hit the reverse gate. I never go into reverse, but you get the nasty grinding noise.

    Uh on my 08 I've never once had a problem going into 6th?

    On the new shifter, I'm actually intrigued and may have to pick one up.

    I get it. It says it in the description. Precision shifts, shorter throws.

    What I didn't get is that it looks like the shifter fits over that so the distance remains the same. Why not just say that instead of stopping with "you missed the point".

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
