THANK YOU! I have been wanting to do this but I was not sure if it was even possiable. For those of you who ever had an on the floor auto...you would realize that they make the post of the shifter like feet tall. It isn't about performance gains or anything it is about improving the looks. Nobody needs to have thier shifter up by the radio. Nice work man keep it up.

hmm..... i see PRND21. looks like an auto to me. now, if he were to do the leather boot idea that someone mentioned.... FLAME ON!!!!!

looks like a nice mod. i'd like to do it just so i can get the damn shifter out of my thigh! i'd have to get a shift knob with an OD button on it, though. i use that too much to not have it.

Mike, you'd have better luck relocating the O/D button somewhere else, I don't think there are any aftermarket shift knobs for an ATX that would let you keep the O/D button somewhere still on the handle. Nothing I have read about anyway.....

Hmm... *Not to Topic-Jack* But what does the O/D do? Does it add more power or something? :/

Just like 5th gear is to a manual. O/D is 5th gear on an auto Depending on the ATX sometimes O/D is 4th gear. Basicly O/D is the gas saver gear for highway travel.
