Lokar Shifters

Posted in How To: Transmission Drivetrain on August 1, 2010

Transmission swaps, modified 4x4s, and custom buggies almost always require shifter modifications or completely new assemblies. Our CJ-8 project was one such vehicle that required a new shifter since we stuffed a Dodge 46RE automatic transmission under the Jeep. Lokar Performance Products has been manufacturing quality shifter assemblies for over 20 years. In the Lokar catalog we found a 16-inch Nostalgia automatic shifter that would work perfectly on our Scrambler project. Compiled here are some highlights and tips from our shifter install. Lokar offers a full line of manual and automatic shifters for just about any transmission and custom application.

The 16-inch shifter was a good choice for our project: Its length placed the shift knob within comfortable reach, which will make it easy to shift from the driver seat. The auto-shifter features a smoothly operating lockout button. We also like the shifter's retro look.
