The shifter Dosnt go down through the floor. It shifts via a cable am I right? I will look into that though.

Yes it's cable operated, so you can mount it anywhere the cable allows. Usually there is a lot of cable outside the grommet, just pull it through.

And when I do pull it through that won't mess the selection of the gear?

Not as long as the cable isn't stretched.

Sounds good. I might have to add some to the cable to make it work. Hope not but that wouldn't be hard to do.

More prep for my Monstaliner project this weekend... Finished scuffing it down, taped it off, & slapped on some chassis saver on a few small areas that I know are prone to rust at some point or another. Hopefully the guy in the brown truck shows up by Friday..

You can't add to a cable easily.

I gained enlightenment to to things I previously thought were just silly:

1. Night wheeling is a ton of fun! The fog lights actually become useful on narrow trails.

2. The rear sway bar is gay. After some night wheeling, I discovered that both end links were snapped at the axle bracket and spent $18 putting on some tougher grade 8 hardware. Proud of myself and how smoothly the little project went, I prepared to congratulate myself after I took it for a brief test drive. I was thinking the handling would go from from completely non existent to bad but was disappointed that there was hardly any change at all...until I took my 6 month old on a ride around some gravel roads last night (makes her fall right asleep) and noticed that all understeer is gone and the handling is really quite neutral. Since I drive quite a bit on snow and gravel the sway bar will stay on, but for any other occasion, I think it's completely worthless.

My ZJ has never been stuck, it was just taking a break from being so awesome!

I'm doing my front and rear long arms right now. It says that the sway bar gets removed for this application. I've been wondering how different it would handle with it removed.
