If you like to manually shift your non-electronic transmission, a replacement shifter may help. Cable-connected shifters can make shifter location and hookup simpler on custom applications. Most are gated to prevent accidental movement into the wrong gear. However, hardcore trail wheelers will often cut off the gate bars between reverse and first gear positions. This way, you can rapidly reverse direction should your rig get too tippy in one direction.
