Default Hurst shifter!

This thing is amazing to say the least. Night and day difference is an understatement. It makes driving the truck that much more fun, really gives it a hot rod feel with the quick smooth shift and that sweeet sound it makes going into gear.

Old garbage.

Old and new.

Love at first shift.

Hurst super boot.

looks great, be sure not to leave any girls alone in your truck if you have given them 'Spanish Fly'

Back from the dead haha!! What tranny does your truck have Russo2 M5OD or Np435 or T-18?? And if you don't mind my asking remember how much you paid for everything? I may consider getting one when I get a little money in..

m5. I paid a little over 200 for it from summit. It's made specifically for the m5 with that short throw deal it's got on the bottom of the stick. It mounts to the top of the shift fork housing.
There's no way it would work with any other trans, you might be able to get some sort of hurst shifter for the old top loader transmissions, but it wouldn't be a short throw that's for sure ha.
I still want to get one for the transfer case to match.
Oh and it has a pistol grip on the top of it now. It's kind of at an awkward angle compared to what it would be on a completely straight stick, but it's still really nice for finding gears and looks awesome.

Picture won't show up for somereason, at least for me. There is a new one in the gallery if you care to look.

Shoot, oh well, I'm contemplating taking a ZF- 5 speed and installing it in my truck, lot of fab work though as it is a Hydraulic clutch type and has to have the slave mounted on the firewall, but it's been done before.

Go aftermarket if you do that, and just buy a pre bled closed system. Saves so much time and whole lot of curse words. I about died when I first put my new clutch in and had no pedal, then I remembered I had to bleed the system.
But if you do get a zf5, they make a short throw for it, you'd have to get yourself in over at powerstroke nation and get one from their sponsors, can't remember right now who it was that sold em last, bigstroker maybe.
Then from there I think you could put a hurst on it like mine being that they both use that parallel bolt system to hold the stick to the stub shaft, unlike the m5 or top loaders.
Good luck dude, hurst shifters look bad to the bone and you will get lots of compliments on it.
And if you do get one, check out these guys http://www.jamesduff.com/ for a transfer case shift, they make some sweet looking ones for all the older style t-cases, of course nothing for the 1356 in my truck, still trying to figure out what I'm gunna do with that, thought about grabbin one from a junk yard, taking it to a grinding wheel until it had the some style as the hurst, that being boxed instead of all round, and then polishing it.
I think the shifter from a 70's muscle car would work, but that's like 100+ dollars.
