Just ordered my GMM ripshifter

I just ordered my GMM short shifter last night from Speedinc. Anyone know what kind of shipping time they are averaging?

Yep, I ordered mine at the end of October and it got here the week after Christmas.
Now if I could just find someone competent enough to install it.

Well this sucks. I had no idea it would take that long to get it. And baron, it shouldn't be that hard to install.

Who knows, yours may come in faster than mine. Mine MAY have been so slow due to the Christmas rush. From the reviews I've read about 'em, it's well worth the wait.

As for installing it myself, I'm more of an electronic guy. Give me a computer or virtually anything else electronic and I can fix it. When it comes to mechanical things, I prefer to watch someone else do it. See, the problem is that I'm extraordinarily forgetful. I'd forget my head if it wasn't attached. When it comes to remembering where I got this bolt or that screw, I might as well forget it. Coming up a screw or two richer after putting a couple of hard drives into a computer probably won't kill you. Coming up a couple of bolts richer after installing engine/transmission components can seriously endanger your life!
Good Luck getting yours in sooner, hopefully it WON'T be two months for you. Unfortunately, they are one of the very few distributors for the GMM Ripshifter...so it's them or fly to australia and pick one up.

There is a post on here from LS2Fast that has the complete install. Step by step with pics. It is a challenging install but he helped us all with the post.

Yeah, I have read that, and a couple other installation threads on various sites...that's pretty much what made me decide that I didn't want to mess with it myself. It was either GM High Tech Performance or Pontiac Enthusiast last month that had their mini-tutorial on how to do it, they said it was a pain in the butt too.
I might attempt it anyway if I can't find anyone to do it within the next couple of weeks. The stock shifter really blows and I can't tolerate it much longer. However, the likelihood of something bad happening is fairly good. haha

Good question, don't you think it would be all mashed up and goofy looking from the different lengths?
