Default Ratchet shifter reccomend

Howdy folks. Was hoping to get some recommendations on a good ratchet shifter for a 77 blazer th400. Cant seem to find one with a long enough stick. Thanks

i wonder if you can just make some kinda center console to set it on so its higher. ive used hurst a lot but that was for smaller 2wd vehicle. if you really want to be cheap go get a stock shifter out of a late 80s camaro they bolt right up. got one in my 93 s10

B&M use to make truck shifters. I would probably do the console thing too, and use a Quicksilver shifter.

I wonder about the B&M unimatic shifter. 12 almost 13 inches tall might be a comfortable reach if installed next to the 4x4 shifter... And yea im trying to be cheap, but not THAT cheap haha. Good idea tho about the console.
