I am in the process of installing this product on my Tacoma. I am having trouble accessing the front two bolts holding on the shifter. There just doesn't seem to be enough room to fit a socket wrench or an open end wrench or anything. I also tried using a knuckle but nothing seemed to work. Any suggestions?

If I remember correctly, I took a hack-saw and bent the portion you're talking about out of the way. If I can, I'll remove my plastic and take a photo for you.

You can also access the bolts from under the truck using a ratcheting boxed end wrench.

I've read a few threads on the B&M shifter. once again, I am not looking for a 'short throw' shifter. just want a shorter shifter.

Am I better off attempting to cut the stock shifter down or is there an aftermarket shifter out ther that is shorter by an inch or two?

Talk to Coupe, he does it for $120 + shifter

Noob here so excuse my lack of knowledge. I have a base 2007 RC 122,xxx miles and when I shift it seems to have a hard time getting into gear. It doesn't grind or pop out of gear, just seems a little too much force to put it into first, the rest are a little smoother but not as I would like it to be. Just flushed and filled the trans oil this weekend and made a difference, but still not to my standards, which are not very high, lol! Anyhow, I was thinking maybe the stock plastic bushing or/& the extension ball might be worn out causing the hard shifting, will the URD help or even fix it? Any one here had same or some what this trouble? I should note this seems to happen more likely when running cold.

Not sure about your troubles shifting, but the URD short shift kit uses the stock plastic bushing that is already in your taco, so if you are thinking of replacing that plastic piece the URD kit does not include it.
