    There are still those that prefer a stick but I'm not one of them.

    I don't know that there is A GOOD shifter for our trucks that are reliable for years, accurate and don't "buzz" on the highway.

    Ya, give me a well-built Automatic any day.

    You can't ta
    You can't take a gearbox with a 4" shifter, put it in a truck, put a 2 foot shifter on it then wonder why it doesn't work.
    The leverage is all wrong for the detent springs
    No different to a big truck, you can't cut 3 feet off the gear lever of your Road Ranger and expect it to work out

    I've had several vehicles with a stick. It's more nostalgia than anything I guess. My 1975 Trans Am had a factory 4 speed, and it was a beast.
