    I was looking at buying a short throw shifter for my tacoma. Does anyone have any experience with the URD shifters? I would like a little insight on the product before I buy one. Does it really have improve the shifting? Are there any downfalls that you've experienced? Thanks in advance for the help

    There are a few threads on this topic already....
    I've had one since the first month I got the truck.
    Big improvement on shifting - no doubt.
    Only drawback is that initially after the install reverse is difficult. Once you break it in though it is no big deal. :cool:

    also, the member Coupe on here modifies shifters to make them more solid. after a while, the bushing in the shifter arm wears out and becomes sloppy even with the URD SS. i have both on my truck and it shifts way better than it did stock

    honestly, i would have liked to see how it was before the URD SS. I installed the URD the first day i had my truck. in fact, i think i got the URD SS before i got the truck.

    I drove mine for about two weeks before I installed the SS. Night & day difference. :cool:

    Favorite mod I've done to the truck thus far. Look in URD's vendor section you'll see a thread about the SS and find that everyone who installs it is quite enthused. No downfalls IMO, only a far superior feel to the shift. enjoy it :D

    also, if you need help with install, I have pics in my gallery
