That's bunk - the Mopar '10 shifter was the very same Hurst supplied short-throw shifter kit. Factory equipped on those vehicles w/ 6-speed manual.

How can they defend their position, when clearly you've had issues and brought in for a prior issue with the clutch (whatever was done then).

You had brought it for ongoing 1>2 and 2>3 gear grinding issues.

There have been a couple of posts with others having their OEM shifter lever break (and I think some of those were with stock shifters).

I remember the times (when I still had the stock shifter), that going from Neutral > 1st when the light was about to change, that it took some force on occasion to push into the 1st gate due to the compliance of the rubber bushings along with the "slop" of the stock unit (more rubber in the block the lever attaches to).

I kept thinking that eventually something would bend and fail if this went on long enough.
Never had issues with grinding or shifting from one gear to another, aside from the cold-start "notchy" 1>2 shifting...that went away ~ 13.8K.

None of that with the Hurst unit at all, just positive shifts/short throw into each gate and none of those long 2>3 throws or the 4>5 / 5>6 vagueness of the stock shifter.
