    I told some people here I was going to try to get some pics. of my B&M Light Truck Megashifter. So here's the story. I've been trying to get my digicam back from my brother, still haven't. So I was at my parents today and realized - my dad has a digicam. So I went out and took a quick shot of it, it's not a great camera, but you get the idea.

    It is not as close to the seat as it looks, I have the seat forward some to accomidate some stereo equipment, the seat will still go all the way forward.

    That looks good. I've been wanting to put one in my truck, do you have any problems hitting your leg on the shifter ? That's my only worry, my long legs and the places I ride at, there are alot of ruts and holes and I tend to get thrown around a little in the cab. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    so, when yall swithed to a floor shifter, what did u do with the column shifter?? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif did u just unhook it and leave it alone? I really like the idea of the floor shifter, but i dont know what i would do with the lever already on the column

    You could knock the pin that hold the lever on the column in and take it off. If down the road you have the collumn out for some reason you could trade the outer housing that the lever rides in for one from a floor shifter one.

    There is a pin at the base where the shifter meets the column. I was planning on driving the pin out and pulling the shifter off, and also disconnecing all of the linkage from the fire wall down to where it links up to the tranny.

    Yes, you drive the pin out and the lever comes free. You then take off the linkage from the column to the trans. You then need to wire or otherwise secure the tab on the column (where the linkage hooks to the column) in place, because if you don't the column sleeve will rotate and you won't be able to take out the key.
