shift kit

Has anyone considered or does anyone run a shift kit?

Not in the Jeep, but...

I did put one in my 72 Chevy pickup many years ago. Just a basic shift improver kit (B&M, I think). It doesn't alter the shift points at all, just gives much firmer, faster, more positive upshifts. I'm still happy with it, although I don't think my wife would let me put one in our (okay, *her*) Jeep!
