There are three different types of shifter positions with gear drive transfer case setups; Top Shift, Forward Shift, and Forward Shift +1". See the diagram to find which one fits your vehicle.
shift stick pattern options
The Offset pattern is designed specifically for the 3rd gen 4Runner and 1st gen Tacoma, where the sticks pass directly through the original transfer case stick slot.
The Centered pattern is designed for the RF1A gear drive doublers, where the vehicle platform is commonly 80's Toyota where the sticks have room to come straight through the center of the tunnel.
The Universal kit provides you with three 14" long threaded 304 stainless steel sticks. These are ready for you to produce your own custom bend pattern and place the shift sticks precisely where you want them.
