I apologize for not getting back to you earlier, I just saw your message. It comes up a little forward of the stock location. For the shifter I cut a np435 shifter off and made a adapter out of .25" plate. It only has to be .75" wide, 2" long, then drill the holes to fit. Once that is made you just hold the shifter, put the trans in first gear and make sure the shifter clears the dash. I'll post a picture in a couple days when I get home.
