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!

I have been giving a lot of thought to putting one in my Zj if you do it post and let me know how it turns out..
I also want to put a B&M shifter.Have never seen one in a ZJ I think it would be cool. If I do it first I will post..

I am putting the B&M shift kit in my ZJ this weekend. I had hoped to find someone that had already done it to see what it was like but no luck. Oh well I'll be the guinea pig
