im assuming you mean your manual stick, but a far as I know the only options that are bolt on non custom applications are the hurst shifter and the fx4 level 2 shifter. im like 99 percent sure thats your only options besides something custom made. iv e researched it for my 06 4.0 5spd and thats the only ones I know of. the problems wit them i think is 1. they are both kind of expensive brand new, 2. the hurst does make throws shorter but will have more noise ad rattle without doing the hurst mod thats on the forums and even after that most seem to still have a fair amount of noise from it. the other option is the level 2 shifter which does look alot better, but it does NOT make shifts shorter like the hurst and it still does make a lilttle noise but not as much as the hurst. neither are prolly goin to be as quiet as the stock ugly one but its up to you. im my opinion the only really good situation would be to find a level 2 shifter in a junkyard but around me that isbasically never going to happen so for now im sticking to stock gay ugly one. sorry if this is alil off becus im typing from my phone, so dont quote everything word for word but im pretty sure those are your options. hope this helps Zach.

yeah i mean like i said there is options justin my opinion arent that great, and esp like u saidevery other vehicle seems to have much better options. ford should have just not made the reg ranger shifter in the newer ones so damn ugly. so until i find a FX4 level 2 one to swap in or hurst or other companies come out with some better options then ill have theugly one.

im not going to lie its going to be very hard to find one unless you either A. spend the money to buy a brand new one which is expensive but so is the hurst new so its not to bad of a stretch t buy it new but it will cost you atleast 300 i think. B. find someone selling on the forums (doubtful) because just about everyone wants it, or find it in a junkyard. alot of guys on here have awesome junkyards like shane (FX4 wanabe) to where they can usually find things like that, but around me there isn't shit. sooo either find it in the junkyard around you or try and get someone to find one for you that has say an auto and wouldnt use it and pay them for the troubles. thats why most will either buy it new which like i said aint cheap depending on how much money you make, or the other ways that i suggested. good luck finding one for cheap, id love one, but all you can do is try. eventually u shud b able to get one somehow.

Zach.
