Default Transmission shifter extention rod?????

I am thinking of moving the floor boards to the forward position on the Cross Roads. I have read the shifter rod for the tranny is not long enough. Since I am not sure I want to keep it there and don't want to make it permanate, where can I pick up a cheap rod? Is there a vendor out there? (A better question may be why did not Ma Vic engineer it with threads long enough to work with OEM?)

oh come on now. they are engineers, no one is smarter!!

oh, if you just want to try it, unbolt the shifter from the motor, rotate it to reach and try it. you may have to adjust the rod some too. i had a SS rod made for mine to move my boards forward, just like stock only longer.

I moved the connector forward a notch on the input? shaft connection when moving the boards forward. Was not real happy with the feel...ended up purchasing a longer SS rod from DTMMIL, a forum member here who makes them. Got everything lined up just right...no more squirrely shift feel. Works great!

Just get a "rod coupling nut" and some threaded rod and extend it temporarily to see if you like then make a new rod.
