Had a great time as usual (our 7th year going to the Mustang Rally)Hahaha! That's awesome. Hope you guys had fun and a safe trip back.
Yeah, its 10hrs to drive out to Rapid City, interwebs show 14hrs+/- from here to Ohio... so yeah, a heck of a drive for you.I'd like to go to the 20th anniversary deal but it's a little further than I want to travel and I'd have a hard time getting vacation approved.
It seemed like the 4wd shifters sit a lot farther ahead on a M5R2 than they do on the older transmissions. Coupled with not knowing how the trans and t-case were going to fit in the truck (was concerned about everything ending up too far back) I just didn’t know how the kit would work out. Knowing what I know now, probably not bad if the linkage is long enough for mine.I'll make it fit one way or another!
Seems like I had plenty of room where the shifter bolts on and it looks like it's kinda sorta shaped the same as the factory shifter. I'm not opposed to floor pan mods by any means but I think they intended to make it fit through say, a '77 F150 shifter hole.
