    Ugh I keep seeing different pictures of both the magnum and the stock t56...
    If your picture is accurate(and mine lands in the same place) then I will definitely be good to go.

    The OEM T56 shifter is almost exactly lined up with the output shaft on the tail housing. As you can see on the Magnum it’s further towards.

    Do you have a picture of it finished?
    I'm looking at what shifter handle I want to go with and what it'll look like put together with seats and possible a console

    That’s with the shifter in the aft position, not flipped to move more forward.

    Yeah I think I'll need it a little farther back, but then it gets into the brace... I'll likely just buy another console or recarpet everything

    Is anyone using the Hooker t56 hump for the swap? They claim it will work with a factory center console. It covers the center cut for the shifter for a t56 magnum (does not work for a 98-2002 factory t56).

    I have one, didn’t use it. I wanted to install it and have it sit under the carpet w/no console.
