Lokar shifter and kickdown

Anyone have both of these set up in their rig with a AMC V8 and a tf999? What Lokar parts did you use? (part numbers) Any photos of the two installed etc??

This is the missing piece to my big puzzle and want to make sure I am making the right decisions about which parts to buy and how easy/proper they will work..

Motor and Trans info:
AMC 360 with Edelbrock performer intake topped with a Holley 4bbl
TF 999 automatic

I had both of these in mine before my swap. The tranny was stock, so no new parts there. Are you doing a swap? What are going from? What concerns do you have?

My concerns involve having/using the correct Lokar parts for a whole new drivetrain that never existed in this CJ before. There is no linkeage of any kind and I have to put in a new one from scratch.... I need to buy the stuff and want to make sure of the part numbers from people who have bought and used them and give the parts the thumbs up....

I used a B&M Megashifter, which works pretty well, but if I were to do it again I'd get an "Art Carr".

Just out of wanting more info....the mega shifter and Art Carr are gate or locking types of shifters... The Lokar is NOT???? Would it be easy to bump and accidentally knock it into another gear? I really like how clean the Lokar is with no big box under it and how it hooks right onto the trans body itself but is there a flaw in how it sits there, unprotected??

The B&M is a ratchet shifter, not gate. What's nice about the Art Carr is that you can modify it to slam straight back and forth between Drive and Reverse. I have no experience with Lokar shifters, but it does look like a good quality piece (like all Lokar products).

I have a Lokar in my CJ but it has a 700R4 and a SB Chevy. I too wanted the clean look of the shifter. I used the one that bolts to the trans. I thought it would vibrate and shake alot being bolted to the trans but it does not. The Lokar does have a lockout button on top of the shifter. You need to push the button in to shift. I think its the best shifter going. If you have any questions I would call Lokar. Plus there is a way to mesure the shifter lenth and where you need to mesure from to get the lenth you need. I cant post pics, dont know why but if you want I can email you some pics of how it looks.
