    They're full or shiat... The detent part num is in the 1st message.. I don't have the bracket part num off hand but it's available. 95-current are all the same bracket regardless if it's column or center shift... More than likely he just didn't want to look up the parts

    finally i have all the parts to start this. tried another dealer and they got me the detent rod.

    now my question for you is. on the 1st gen set up you did. from the pics. it looks like you turned the base plate around and cut a piece off. in other words before you cut anything the side of the base plate with 2 holes was towards the back of the truck. what was the reason for doin it like that?

    then i look at the pics of the second gen. looks like the side of the base plate with 2 holes is towards the front of the truck.

    i was wondering if i can bolt the base plate like it is in the 2nd gen.

    I didn't cut anything off the base plate. Turned it around, flattened it, bolted it down..(with rubber seals)

    The reason I turned it around was the hump design..

    what year was the console out of on the 1st gen? i mounted my base plate backwards like you did. i have a corner of the base plate sticking out past the side of the console.

    maybe looks weird in the pic, but i only see one mounting hole on your base pate.

    Hey guys i have a question on this. I have been wanting to do this for a while, and definitely will now; the problem is that Ive got that damn peanut Butter interior. Do you think I'll still be able to find a center console in that color? From what I heard its not a very popular interior choice lol. I dont like it either but its what it came with. Thanks guys
