Price: $100.00
Pros: Shorter throws
Cons: Sometimes I turn on rocker switches with 1st and 3rd gear shifts
Recommended? No

Comments: I got mine on craigslists, new in box from a guy who changed to a different trans before installing it. It's actually for the AX-5 (for 4 cylinder models). B&M discontinued it, but still make it for the AX-15.
Took about two hours to install. Shifts are much better, but my knuckles sometimes hit my rocker switches on the dash with 1st and 3rd gear shifts. You can get a generic 2" shift extension which will solve the problem. The shifter is shorter so you'll have a slightly longer reach to the shift knob.
Despite the drawbacks, I think it's a good upgrade for your rig.

Price: $149.00
Pros: Easy install, quicker, shorter shifts
Cons: none so far
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Seems like you have to reach so far with a stock shifter. I switched to a NV3550 and figured might as well do it right.

Price: $200.00
Pros: Great feel, good quality
Cons: Depending on what knob you put on top, you may hit your hand on the dash when shifting forward.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Fit great and works way better than factory. Depending on what lift you have it may come close to the tub when shifting towards the dash.

Price: $189.00
Pros: Smooth shifting, 30% less throw, very easy to install
Cons: None yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This was recommended to me by the mechanic who repaired my transmission. Was having a problem with my hand hitting the bezel everytime I went to shift into 1st or 3rd. WOW, what a difference. The gears enage with ease, no grinding, no popping out of gear, great all around upgrade. Highly recommended.

Price: $150.00
Pros: Quality product. Nice solid, direct shifts.
Cons: None, really.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: When I swapped an AX15 behind my 2.5L, the trans didn't come with a shifter.
Used shifters were going for $100-150, which is totally nuts.
The dealership wanted something like $300 for a factory NIB.
I got the B&M on sale for around $150.
I don't power shift, and actually drive like an old man, but it's very nice to shift with. When I drive my buddies YJ (same year/motor/AX5) I feel like I'm "guessing" at which gear i'm stuffing the shifter into. Factory is VERY sloppy.
If you need a new shifter, this is what I recommend!
