    I cant use the factory style mechanical shifter in my trail truck because it binds so I have been looking into cable shifters. I saw the shifter that mounts to a factory chevy column that they used on the Ultimate K10 in petersons and really liked it. Its made by www.ididit.com and costs $124. I can probably afford that, but I'd rather not if there's any way I can make one myself. Anyone have any ideas? I'd really like to keep the factory column if at all possible. Thanks.

    I'm pretty sure Jason made one for his transfer case.

    Jason's t-case shifters are cable. I am working on my t-case cable shift setup using old cat loader hydrolic control cables. As for tranny the hot rod rags have em as previously mentioned
