Well I know it is not a bronco but I figured your guys maybe be able to help. We have a 2000 Mustang GT with a 4.6 manual. Now my dad has been wanting to put a Hurst short throw shiffter with a T- Handle in the car.

Now I was looking at Jegs.com and they have three Hurst shifter two that are chrome with a white ball nob.

Now I was wondering which one I should get and just change the nob to the hurst T-shift style nob that we have

http://www.jegs.com/i/Hurst/530/391-5071/10002/-1

also they have a black shifter

Yeah I bought him the T-handle a long time ago as a joke since we never had the money to buy the shifter now I am looking at which I should get for x-mas

As long as the threads are the same all the knobs will interchange. The shifter handles will interchange also, the base is where you gain the shorter throw. If you wanted to install just the base with the stock handle, knob, and boot you could.

More importantly, make sure you get the correct shifter, 2000 was the transition year for the Mustang trans, early 2000 GT's had the T-45 and later they had the T-3650(or 3550, always get them mixed up) so double check which trans you have, you can look at the Trans code on the door sticker and reference mustangforums.com, they have a thread for all those door sticker codes.

And if you do the install yourself make sure you set the shift stops correctly, if not you'll bend a shift fork, most of the time that's the reason guys end up wiping out trannys.

I've had a Hurst shifter in my stang for about 10 years. I think the T handle is the only way to go with it. You might want to check out the Pro 5.0 shifter too. That the only one I like more than Hurst. It's got a shorter and much crisper throw.
