I've had 2 different B&M shifters, and so far, I prefer the Art Carr.
I did file off one of the tabs, so I can go directly from D to R
If I were to do it again I'd get the Carr just for that reason. I love the idea of being able to slap from D to R.

Does it look like this one, or do you have more parts? Some pictures might help.

A couple of other things to think about.

1.) knob height when installed.this will determine if a box needs to be made that sits above the tub.
2.) clearance between the tranny and tub, if your going to mount the bottom part underneath.
3.) cable operated of a solid rod, from a quick google looks like cable was OEM
4.) do you have the the proper hardware to mount the cable securely to the tranny. The 2 B&M shifters I have included different brackets for different trannys.
From the picture I posted it appears the mounting would need to be flat, so the shifter lever sits straight up and down.
And you said you need a new plate for the hole in the tub, correct?

Bill

That's is correct, will need a new tunnel cover blank to cut some custom holes in.
The shifter setup I got was used with a 727 in the scout so although the cable is a bit stiff, its all mounted up properly.

Having sat the body on 2 inch pucks, there will probably be enough room under there for mounting, I still need to climb in the Jeep and see.

Got a really cool OEM floor cover/p-r-d-1-2 indicator with the shifter... its of green and brown so matches the Jeep awesome

I would get some 16 gauge steel, and make the plate. Make a cardboard pattern for the size and holes, and transfer the pattern to the plate.

Remember, you don't want any sharp bends in the cable. A big loop is best. The cable needs to come straight from the shifter and start the loop. The cable may end up lying on the tranny/TC, I would protect it with whatever hose fits the I'd of the cable. Garden hose may work, split it from end to end and use some zip ties to hold it on.

When installing the cover on the tub I would use 1/4" bolts with a fender washer on the glass side, ( maybe 2 depending on the thickness of the washer.)

Bill,

I pre drilled holes in the tub and crimped riv-nuts around the perimeter, in the holes. I think I will just make my own plate, beats paying 50$ for one on the internet
