The manual has a stick shift lever right in front of it.

If you have one of them thar automagic thingies...I'll explain....you see, we actually move a lever to manually select our own gears!

This lever is located really close to where the Daystar switch panel goes.

OK that means you have a clutch pedal also…. You mean I have to move my hand and my foot at the same time??? That’s way too much to even think of.

yeah but mine never stalls while crawling a tough section

I looked at the pics in the one of the other threads and the shift boot (I think thats what the rubber thingie at the bottom of the gear changing thangamajig is called) looks close but not close enough to be a major problem.
Might just have to be a little pickier about switch selection.

So now you can't have the windows down?

Totally kidding around....That looks fantastic. Looks like a really professional job, and located there- they look so much easier to access than even the OEM switches for the lockers, sway bar disconnect, and hazard. Great idea!

Thanks, but the one is a little crooked the saw wanted to go one way while I wanted to go another.

Passenger can always tilt their head to the left if it bothers them too much. Still looks great.

Even on the automatic the left most switch can get bumped "on" by your hand when shifting the transfer case back into 2WD. The work-around to the problem is to assign the switch that can get bumped to something with no side affects. I have mine hooked up to my winch interrupt, so turning it on monentarily won't really affect anything.

The problem with the 6 speeds is the shift boot hits the switches not the hand and if you put it in to gear real fast the shifter itself hits the pod very poor design IMO

I think if you put them lower than I did you could fit two more above them.

yeah, I've got the same issue and the mechanic gave me a list of vehicles that have a leather boot that I could use to replace the stupid rubber boot. VW has several.
