im looking to improve the minivan automatic shifter the Challenger comes with.....i just dont like it...
i ordered a Mopar T shifter with my mopar bucks, but i am not sure thats the best answer either...its kinda trying to copy the old Hurst stick shifters...its not a stick its an automatic, so is that wrong?
i definitely dont like the gunslingers for the automatic...it just doesnt look right.
anyone have the T handle? any other options?
i wish the challenger had a dual gate like the old GTO's did....the side to side autostick is just strange to me..like a missed opportunity to go old school & copy Pontiac
IM GOING TO DRIVE OVER YOUR CAR
AND DO A BURNOUT ON YOUR HOOD!
There was a thread on here of a member that custom built a shifter based on the hurst but with a longer shaft to the handle (yeah, yeah very funny) which I thought was the best possible shifter anyone has so far. I'll try find it for you.
EDIT: Found it Did the S/S Dodge Hurst Shifter Mod
Ordered a 2011 SRT8 (non-IE) on November 9, 2010 in Brilliant Black Crystal Pearlcoat, 5 speed auto and fulllllyy loaded! Her name is Stella
Current Mods: Speedlogix Splash Guards, Speedlogix Catch Can
Planned mods: Mopar CAI, Strut Tower Brace, Kicker Double Subwoofer, and a Diablo Predator Tune. For now

looks like i made a good decision
the old one just unthreads right? i saw dodge charges $10 to install it, so i figured it must be that easy!
From what I understand it is very easy. I think you just push the chrome ring down from the bottom and it pulls of or something. There is a link to how to do it on this forum somewhere. I will update this post if I find it.
Found the link. It gives a good step by step on how to change out you shifter handle. The only problem with write-up is he tells you to put your car in drive for access, but never bothers to mention that it might be a good idea to put your park brake on. lol
