Shifter Cable

Once you've mounted the shifter run the shifter cable through the floor (keeping it away from exhaust pipes), you're in the final stretch with only the factory shifting linkage to disregard and the B&M cable brackets to mount. There is usually factory linkage coming down from around where the steering column comes through the firewall into the engine compartment. Remove all of this and try to get the factory tree shifter off the column without screwing up the steering column. If your truck has an "Overdrive" and an "Overdrive Off" button on the end of the factory shifter instead of the dash, consult your local dealer about how to rewire the few wires in the shifter to a switch you can mount on your dash.
