Default Hurst shifter, pistol grip and pics

So yesterday I finally got my hurst shifter installed. Just wanted to give a thanks to all who've posted or written threads on this topic. It definitely made my decision easier. With my shifter I went with a hurst pistol grip shifter handle and I have to say, the extra 3" in length is really nice. Because of the position of the shifter lever I wasn't sure if it would work that well but the shifter handle threads are angled so for me it's very comfortable, and I think it looks pretty badass too lol. In regards to the hurst 'rattle'... I may be a little old fashioned but, it's not rattling I get. I can really feel and hear the transmission spinning, engaging etc... I actually like the direct connection feeling. It reminds me of a time when vehicles came stock with Hurst shifters and this was the norm. It feels a lot like my Duster. I do agree that it doesn't feel refined and 'new', but I'm really happy with this 'mod'. Thanks again to all. For all the critics, I fixed the bit of binding on the bottom of the shift boot after I took these pics. (trimmed the rubber a bit more) I didn't even see that until I posted this. LMK what you think. P.S sorry for the crappy pics. lol

Loomsa great! Glad we could help, being able to feel and hear the trans def opens up the relationship between man and truck.

As for the pistol grip, I love the looks of it... but it'll cause damage in the long run from the harder pulls when shifting. I swap my t handle in every once in awhile, but usually not for long.
