Default Crown Vic signal and shifter install

Got my Crown Vic signal and shifter installed, the shifter is a direct swap but the turn signal switch took some work to get wired up. The best part is the new shifters don't have those stupid ridges that hold dust and are impossible to clean.

oh man, that's cool!
So, the shifter just bolts right up and has the same range of motion?

ya the shifter is a direct swap, OD and all, but the signal switch you have to swap the resistor pack from the ranger into the stalk from the crown vic

It sits about half an inch higher on the wheel but the position works well.

Do Crown Vic's also have a chrome tilt lever? I can't remember if they do or not.

I am not sure if they have the chrome tilt but I may look into that.

Thanks for all the complements guys, I think it adds an upscale touch to the interior.
