Advanced Adapters Cable Shifter for NP231... input?

Thinking of installing one of these as my factory shifter's bushings have all but fallen out and the linkage has been banging around and pissing me off on my daily commute.

Will this work with stock ride height for the time being?

I installed the Novak cable shifter and it works great. I can’t comment on the one you posted except to ask if it reverses the shift pattern? The Novak setup uses the stock shift lever and maintains the stock shift pattern.

It does indeed reverse the shift pattern... I've looked at the novak setup but the AA setup looks "easier" to install... Looking for any input on the new one

I got mine a few weeks back... REALLY nice to use and stuff, but honestly, it was a PAIN to install.

Well, the install was easy, but my shifter came in pieces, and had to be assembled. The instructions to do so were SUCH a pain to follow, and the pictures were useless.

The actual install on the vehicle was very simple though, and adjustment was very easy too.

My bad... Your profile has a Novak shifter listed under future mods....

How high does the shifter sit in 2wd? Any pics?

I was like you and installed one because my stock shifter bushings were shot. My jeep has a 2" lift with no body lift. So it I would think it will work in your Jeep no problem. The most difficult part of the install for me was getting the old stuff off.
The pattern is reversed on the 231 so in 2wd the lever is up and if you have long legs like me your knee might rest against it. Not huge problem, I got used to it. The instructions with the kit are good, it's the clarity and the size of the pictures that leave a lot to be desired. Advance has two install videos on youtube that were very helpful.

$300 for the AA? I get they have some time and money in that but come on. I can buy a full TC for cheaper then that. Even the Novak seems a little over priced for what you get.

why would you want to spend $100 more on AA when you can novak for less. and it does the same thing.

Some people have more money than common sense. Why spend more for a product that doesn't even maintain the factory shift pattern. I have used and have always been happy with the advance adapters products I have used. However when it came time to buy a cable shifter Novak was the clear choice for me.
