Anyone got pics of a B&M Light Truck Megashifter installed in their truck?
I don't have any pics. right now but I will take some. It probably won't be untill sat. or sun. though.
what do you have it in a k5 or pickup??
if it is in a pickup do you have any issues with it hitting the seat or dash when shifting?
i'm also interested in seeing pic's.
Thanks. I'll check back to sneak a peek. What is your opinion of the shifter? Worth the cash or not?
Here is a picture of the Z-gate shifter in mine. I still have to trim the plastic. The Z-gate sucks, you get what you pay for.
I have it in a pickup. That was one of my concerns because my fiance is only 5'2" so she has to move the seat up all the way, but I still have plenty of clearance.
I definately think it is worth the money. It is very solid. Really I don't have a bad thing to say about it.
I've been thinking about the same thing. My brother had a Megashifter in his Camaro years ago and I loved it. I'll be interested in seeing the pics as well.
B&M makes a taller version of the megashifter for trucks Right ???? /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif
they do. ITs the same thing just a taller base. the stick might be taller but I'm not sure. I've considered getting one.
Summit should carry those right???? /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif
I believe so yes. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
I've been thiking bout' getting one for my K10 I have a TCI built 700r4 I love it But shifting with the stock grandma shifter sucks /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif
Isent shifting it you self really bad for the tranny? I heard it will trow a pump fast if you do. BTW If you are gonna shift em though the B&M has a reverse lock out so you dont gotta worry about that anymore and you can still hit neutral.
my trans has a full manual valve body so I have to shift it I think If its built for it It shouldn't hurt any thing My problem is I forget To put it back in first at stop lights so when I go to take of it really bogs down /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif
I dident realize you had one of those, I think there REALLY COOL though do they cost anymore then a regular 700R4 from TCI?
I bought it from my boss he paid 1500 dollors for it and another 600 putting full manual and trans brake in it plus 400 for the converter I traded my Scout for it he was going put it in a 55 chev p/u but he sold the truck It was a 2-whhel drive tranny so I swapped tail shafts and put a 208 behind it (bad Idea Been Through 2 cases since I got my 37s) I love it it shifts Extremley Hard barks the tires going into Third gear chirps going into overdrive /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif
