I shortened my shifted by sawing off 2-3 inches of the shift tower and retapping with a 12-1.25 tap from Murray's and threaded the stock shift knob back on. Also deleted the reverse lockout by removing it from the unit. Cost was 5 bucks, no problems after 2 years. Of course that was on my 2000, but I'm sure its the same concept for you.
