    1980CJ7 t-999 auto-trans column shift to floor shifter conversion

    I've got a 1980 CJ7 with a GM350 matched up to a t-999 automatic transmission with a column shifter. The shift linkage is a sloppy mess and I'm looking at installing a floor shifter. Any recommendations on shifters or installation tips would be appreciated. Actually it's a TF-999 if that makes any difference
    Thanks

    I used the Lokar shifter to adapt to the 4L65E in my 81 Cj5. They are pricey but a solid unit. I'm not sure if the t-999 is supported.

    Thanks Eugene, Lokar makes a good product and I've looked at them. I think the t-999 and T-904 are basically the same as far as the linkage goes. They do have one compatible with the T-904

    Don't mean to highjack your thread but what a you gonna do with the old linkage parts? Are they salvageable? I've got an 85 Scrambler that I would like to convert to an auto trans with factory parts (column, linkage, etc.). If you're willing to sell, please let me know. Thanks

    I'm probably keeping the column itself but you can have everything else. Hopefully I can come up with a new set up soon. I'll let you know when I do.Name:  IMG_20170315_101142646.jpg

    To answer my own question in case anyone else is interested. The tf-999 is basically the same as the tf-904 which has a number of shifters that are compatible. I decided to instal a Hurst Pro-Matic 2. The shifter attaches ti the console cover. I reinforced the cover with 1 1/4" x 1/4" flat steel underneath and a piece of 1" 8 ply plywood on top. Got rid of the sheet metal screws went back with speed nuts and 1/4" stainless cap screws even added a few to the console. Weather striped around the outside. I am very pleased with the results very rigid no vibration.

    RED HOT if you're still interested in the column linkage you can have it. Give me a call 427-6900 please leave a messageName:  20190224_151400 (1).jpg

    Left a message on your phone with my number, feel free to call me. After 4 o'clock during the week, any time on weekends works best for me. I am very interested.

    Thanks
