I was just wondering if anyone has installed a shortshift kit themselves, do you know how to remove the oem shifter out of the plastic housing?

i was able to do it withregular needlenose. it was a real bitch but it worked. after you get that ring off the shifter should fall right out.

I got a Deiselgeek shifter so it replaced the whole thing with the updated, non-pushdown reverse one.

Goodluck with the install, they make shifting sooo much nicer!
