    That took some getting used to, and I've been driving manual transmissions my whole life.
    I've found that if I grab the left side of the shift knob with the palm of my hand it will go from 5th to 6th easier.

    Looks great. I really hope the top is threaded to accept standard shift knobs. I ended up chopping the top of my stock shaft off and welded on a threaded portion.

    Hi guys. Bit of an update. I called B&M. These should be in stock around the 14th, but pricing is set at $469.99!!

    $300 sounded doable. $470 is a totally different story.

    You guys will spend 400 + on a fancy steering stabilizer but 469.99 for something that might actually help is out of the question

    Hmmm, well the 3.6L is used by Maserati punched to 400+ HP, and my JKURHR is red...

    I installed mine about a month ago. I like the shorter throw. It is also requires more force to shift which I think is good because my factory shifter was somewhat loose feeling

    I recommend ordering an extra "shifter donut" in case you tear the original one like I did. I have the part number if you need it.

    BTW you don't have to drop the gas tank or the cross member as per BM's instructions . You can slide in the shifter donut from below and push the shifter through it from above

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.
