We like the short throw of the B&M shifter. We figure that had it not been for internal problems with the transmission, it would have lasted way longer, so we ordered another one. In the 11 years since we installed the old one, B&M modified the design a bit. The base of the new shifter has the same CNC-machined and anodized aluminum, but the stainless steel stick was changed. B&M tells us they changed the location and angle of the bend between our old shifter (top) and the new one (bottom) for better floor pan and console clearance. With our 1-inch-lift motor mounts and Tummy Tucker skid, our old shifter was indeed hitting the console. The new one doesn’t.
