    Shifter?

    I have a B&M Ripper now and I would like a shorter stick. What would be easiest, cut the stick and rethread it or buy/trade a pro 5.0 with a short stick?

    Just buy a shorter stick and bolt on it.

    Only the older B&Ms have a separate handle you bolt to the shifter. The new ones do not allow the swap( they have a one piece construction). If you are set on the short stick you have already identified your options: modify or swap-out.

    Did not know that about the B&M shifters. Thanks for the info. I agree you have your options already.

    Sell your ripper and get the pro 5.0 with a short stick.
