They fit beer cans pretty well.

Question:

What is the part number for the bulb(s) that illuminate the PRND indicator windows on either side of the shifter on a RRC?

Mine get REALLY hot, so I'd like to do an LED conversion.

Ashcroft console working out great, but I wish the jockey box was bigger. Seems like a deeper piece could be fab bed & switched for the OEM?

Thanks,

Paul.

Does anyone make a custom RRC/D1 auto shifter? The cap on top of my RRC shifter keeps popping off- I could get a new one, but if there's a complete shifter assembly that looks/fits/works better, I'd be interested. Especially when I have the LS swap done (with 6L80e transmission).

I would rather go with something a little nicer than the D1/RRC shifter. I've seen a couple of options out there, just wondered if there is anything new.
