There's a very clean auto install on one of the LRM builds(yellow 130, pilgrim) in the January 2012 issue. They kept it in the standard place for the manual stick by re-routing the shifter to above the transmission and bolted it to braces bolted to the transmission tunnel. Looks pretty good with the normal gearstick gaiter on it. Only possible because they're using a RR Borg Warner t-case so that lever only has to go forward and backward.

no the upgraded one from Ashcroft, doing another as we speak. The compushift directions are shit, honestly they are completely wrong, and really very limited with the usage details. But it was butter when done. the new one will have a some slight mods to the console, It is expensive in parts and shipping but so worth it in my opinion for a daily driver, that will hardly ever be offroaded. Went with the 1.2 tcase too.
