    B&M and Hurst V-Matic come to mind for me.

    from what i have gathered to put one in a 4th gen use a megashifter for a 3rd gen and do some tweaking for it to fit.

    The B&M ratchet shifter for a 3rd gen can be modified to fit. Shouldnt take to much work The universal shifters sit a bit higher, from what I've seen, than the 3rd gen specific B&M.

    I thought I had pics, but couldn't find them....I have the shifter and tranny out now, so I'll try and get some more pics of the changes I made to the bracket for you....I basically cut one ear off of it, then welded it it back on to match up with the bolt holes in the pan on the 4l60e
