    Right now it's just mocked-up, not completly mounted. It should raise up about an inch. I might need to modify the opening to fit some more.

    THANKS!

    Dumb Question:

    Would a Lokar be able to handle off road vibration? Not pop out of gear?
    I'm looking at an Art Carr shifter as well.

    I'm also going with a Lokar floor mounted E-brake.

    Brand name for a company that sell stuff for vintage vehicles. The floor shifter on this thread is from Lokar.

    I'm not worried about it poping out. It's mounted to the trans directly like in the above pic.

    I want to go full manual reverse valve body and get a lokar 23inch shifter but I didnt find one at summit for the reverse pattern. Thats a killer looking shifter though.

    I have the 23" nostalgia shifter. it would work with a reverse pattern. you would just have to push the button to up shift and it would ratchet down shift.

    never had a problem with vibrations or popping out of gear. I have had mine 7 years now and am hard on the truck, including rowing the shifter a lot when wheeling.

    the chrome is starting to pit, but I don't do the kind of upkeep that most hot-rod guys do.

    Is the removeable tranny hump stock?

    Did you change out the column as well or just remove the shifter?

    How much $$ does it cost?

    Cool :D !
    If that's the case about no problems popping out, then maybe I'll get a Lokar instead of an Art Carr.
    I really like the 'stock look' of the Lokar:bow: !

    This is an excellent reference thread :waytogo: :bow: :bow: !

    My tranny hump is removeable, it even had the outline of the original shifter hole. So I cut along the outline for the stock look. I paid around 160 from summit and it's a 16" (maybe 18" I'll check later) shifter. Also, I changed out my colomn for a manual one.
