I just posted up about wiring something strait into the esm wiring harness, since all it is, is a contact, it's just a modulating switch, one for up shift, and one for down shift. So if you could manually wire into a switch and remove the nickle contactor ( to take care of the codes that I'm sure will pop up) all you are doing is moving the switch in the esm from down there to your steering column..

Re: Hurst releases paddle shifter...

TCI had a kit out for a while..I see your point...I was woundering why no one figured out why the tci kit wouldnt work..Im thinking the price is a big factor..that Hurst kit is alot cheaper..might be worth a try.

Even a cheapo kit would work, as long as it has a switch in it, doesn't have to be a certain make it just can't be a digital switch. If someone had a spare esm and a harness I'd try it on my jeep..
