Shifter Mounted

We were able to route the shifter cables through the floor to our Winters Sidewinder shifter. There is no button to push or brake lockout in this Jeep, so the gates are all that keeps us from accidentally bumping the shifter from one gear to the other on the freeway (like from Drive to Reverse). Some guys will cut the detents (arrows), but we will leave ours alone for now. There are also “Rock Crawler” shifters that feature a straight pass from Reverse to Low, but they require a reverse valve body and we don’t want to dig into our transmission right now.
