Who's running a PRG Shifter?

How many miles with it? Thoughts? I've read through a few older threads but have not heard much about them recently. Interested to hear how it feels with some mileage on it.

I have somewhere around 40-50K on mine.

Some people like them and some people don't. I like mine. Shifts feel crisper, smoother and more car-like. But there a little extra noise (from both the transmission and the shifter itself) and the gates feel narrower (6th gear was a challenge at first and I still miss it on occasion).

I don't ever recommend it one way or the other because I think it's very much personal preference.

Thanks for the input, With that many miles on it is there any slop?

Not at all. It feels the same as the day I installed it.

Perfect, thats all I'm after to be honest. My OEM shifter is completely mushy, I can move it atleast 2" side to side in every gear.

A month late, but this. All of that.

60k+ on mine. Solid as the day I put it in. Makes the same noise it did then too. Wouldn't go back to stock even if I could.

Easy, aside from the fact that I somehow managed to slice my hand open. I spent as much time cleaning up blood as I did installing the shifter.

^If you are wondering whether the intent of that last sentence was to emphasize the extent of blood loss or the relative ease of the project, it could go either way.

The occasional shift from 5 to 6 at highway speed can be frustrating. The gates are close and easy to miss during an quick maneuver. It could very well be user error. It maybe even gear oil, yeah that's it.
