What to Look Out for When Buying Ford Bronco Shifters?
If your Ford Bronco shifter is worn out or malfunctioning, you can replace it with a brand-new one which means that you are going to retain the same look, ergonomics, and functionality as your stock (OEM) shifter.
Short Throw Shifters
A short throw shifter is designed to reduce the distance and effort required to shift gears manually. These are designed for manual lovers who want the quickest and most precise shifter engagement with their Ford Bronco models.
Sequential shifters are the very top-end of Ford Bronco racing transmissions which are designed for lighting quick shifting but are borderline unusable on the road.
When it comes to custom Ford Bronco shifters, the world truly is your oyster. Some people prefer OEM+ looks with higher-quality materials while others are willing to go all out with pistol-shaped shifters, illumination, special engraving, and adjustable components.
Quality and Durability
When it comes to quality and durability, there are some differences between Ford Bronco manual and automatic shifters.
Because a manual shifter is constantly in your hands, you should go for one that is able to take the stress of constantly pushing the lever up and down, sometimes in a very aggressive manner.
Either way, you should only consider shifters made out of durable materials that can last as long as possible.
There are also some very interesting special features one can get with some Ford Bronco shifters such as adjustable shifters, reverse lockout, noise and vibration reduction, improved shift feel, and paddle shifters.
Adjustable shifters allow you to customize the throw of the shifter which means that you are essentially able to choose between different styles and types of engagements depending on your environment and your preferences.
Reverse lockout is a feature that blocks your ability to shift the car into reverse or into low gear to keep the transmission safe.
Noise and vibration reduction and improved shift feel help make the shifting experience smoother while paddle shifters enable you to shift gears directly on your steering wheel.
