Default Manual shifter on expo console

I have searched and cant seem to find the answer. I have the expo full console in my 2000 extended cab and my shifter comes back far enough to crash into the console and eliminates the use of the front cup holder. Is there any way possible to adjust or relocate the shifter to a higher more forward position to stop that from happening?

Thanks in advanced!

Move console back a couple inches & fab something for the gap up front. Did the full console swap on my 95. Cup holder only in danger with taller cups.

Get the cup holder from a 1996 model. They have a figure 8 cup holder with an ashtray in front of them. You can remove the ashtray and cut out the small plastic piece and you would have all the room you need for shift lever travel. Here is a pic of mine... not real good shot but you can get the idea. That is my iPod laying in the open ashtray.

Yes, they are interchangeable. I have both styles, I just prefer this one over the other.

There is also this one from a 2001 Explorer Sport:



This one is a one-piece deal that may look better after cutting and installing the shift boot.
