    I would think it would put pressure on the shifter forks? Or am I wrong?

    I left the shifter stock length and put on a different knob. The factory ones are kinda ugly imo. shifter.JPG

    Just another attempt to look cool and stroke ego and that's it.

    I did it for comfort. The shifter was really short in my truck, even with the seat on the floor. I added a 6 inch extension, barely noticeable.

    Since we're on the subject of why people do such things, why do I see these idiots running their headlights, fog lights, and LED light bars on a crystal clear night?
     
    BlueThunderr, Tropsnart, Tb0n3 and 9 others Thank this.

    then you probably don't understand, chicken lights, tilted antennas, long nose over regular hood, either.

    your life must be dull and drab.
