Now with over 6 months of development time we have made a number of changes to the kit and how its offered. The main change that will impact driveability is, we are no longer offering the race style sequential shifter as an option. This doesnt mean you can't fit one of these shifters in your own time down the track. But we have decided that for vehicles driven frequently its simply not the right option. The race shifter is great for rowing gears, but no so great for shunting in a car park.

DIY kits are not available, this must be installed by us or one of our installers. We currently have installers located, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Mackay, Newcastle, Melbourne and Perth. Please use the contact form if you would like to contact an installer in a specific area.

The base kit is supplied with the items listed below also as per this video - Youtube Link

There are now 4 optional extras for you too choose from. Which you can add to the cart with this base kit.

     Optional Extra 1: The centre console. We currently have a reinforced version of the Pittman 4x4 console available. This is not the same as thier other consoles it has been made to our specification with a stronger section around the shifter to ensure strength where its needed. We have options for different chassis. Link to the console here - Automatic Console Options WE CAN NOT MODIFY YOUR EXISITING CONSOLE, SO IF NOT ORDERING ONE, PLEASE ENSURE YOUR CONSOLE WILL BE READY FOR A 8SPEED GEAR SHIFTER



al Extra 2: Cruise Control. Vehicles fitted with factory cruise control will require an aftermarket cruise control module. This is to bypass the factory ECU's clutch slip detection. However, if you have an earlier model vehicle with out cruise control you can also option the cruise control to be supplied with your 8speed kit. Link here - Cruise Control Modules



al Extra 3: New modified transfer case gear. As explained in the above video, a cruical part of being able to maintain the factory rear tail shaft length and not need to shorten it, is getting the transfer case as close to the 8 speed transmission as possible, one part of us being able to do that is modifying the inlet on the transfer case input gear. Kits fitted by us do not require this option as we will modify your existing gear. However if you are fitting the kit yourself or even getting a shop to do it, this means it can be done with out needing to visit a machine shop. YOU WILL LIKELY NEED THIS IF WE ARE NOT FITTING THE KIT. - New Transfer Case Gear



al Extra 4: Transmission Upgrade. The base kit is supplied with a Reconditioned 8HP transmission with a 12 Month warranty. For high power applications above 1000nm engine torque ratings, please look at the upgrade option - Transmission Upgrade Options

This kit is designed to be fitted to a standard vehicle so modifications to certain parts of the kit may be required when fitting to a modified vehicle.

While we do our best to make the kit suits all modifcations or work around modifications as best we can, some long range tanks do have clearance issues with the transfer case and tail shaft and we do not recomend centrally positioned long range tanks to be used with this kit. If you have a long range tank it may require custom brackets to allow a few mm extra clearance, this is not something we can help with.
