Center shift

Do you guys think we will ever see the center shift in the 250 and up trucks? I remember talks of it before the truck came out but it all kind of seemed to fall to the wayside???

My truck is a 2004 F250 4x4 6.0 CC LB Sport with black interior and quad captains chairs. Mods include; 2005 front fascia and head lamps, Custom front bumper with Piaa dual function lights, 2008 side mirrors, Cowl Hood, Recon truck lights, Line-X bedliner, Nathan K 5's with dual compressors and 17 gal tank, Retrax bed cover, 10" lift, 38x14.5x16 Toyo M/T's, 456 gears, PML diff covers, Pro Comp ladder bars, Amp Research power steps, triple A-pillar with Dpricol gauges, Pioneer Z1 with Navigation, Boston Pros, Straight Pipe exhaust, air intake, Head Studs, Dfuser tunes and a Nasty ??? Alarm system. I removed all emblems and installed some front quarter panel vents.

I think he means a full length middle console with the gearshift in the middle. Similar to the King Ranch F-150's.

I'm with you there. I love my 6-speed and think that a full length center would just be over the top, even with an auto. The interior layout they have on these new 08's is amazing and everything is easy to reach. I wouldn't change a thing. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Keep these things work trucks.

I myself had just assumed they would put in a console shift with the redesign, but when it made its debut it was missing! I would take it!

I have it in my current '04 F-150 FX4 and love it. Wished I could have got it on the '08 I ordered.

This "flow-through floor console" is only avaliable on King Ranch and Harley F-150's. And the F-150's no matter what trim level only come in automatic transmissions, WTF Ford. What happened to good ol' basic light work trucks?

I hope the Super Dutys don't follow in those footsteps.

the 6spd doesn't hold the 6.4 or 6.0 in the boost like the torqshift does, so you actually are better off with the auto, you'll go much faster also, but some people love their standards :shrug: Anyways I doubt you'll ever see a center console shifter in a super duty, JM :2cents
