    I have the TRD Quickshifter in my truck and love it. It makes a big difference, really shorten ups the shifts. I did not notice any difference in height of the lever.

    Yes it does raise the height of the shifter a bit. I got used to it real quick, so much that when I took off the URD shifter I hated how low the shifter was stock.

    I've got the URD on my truck and love it. Shifting into reverse is a little tough due to the reduced leverage, but it's not the easiest thing on the 6-speed anyway.

    I'm pulling off the short-shifter before the race only to reduce another potential point of failure. Otherwise I'd keep it on there. URD makes a nice product and it actually shortens the throw more than that TRD kit.

    Hey homer, I can't help but notice that you have an automatic now, are you perchance looking for a home for that URD short shifter, or did you trade it in with the X?
