I picked up a bunch of parts for my truck a while back, including a T-86 with overdrive. The T-86 is a few years newer than my truck, but out of the same make. The guy I bought the parts from says you can replace the top cover with a top-loader shifter and it will work. I wasn't really sure of this, but I found on Novak's site that Jeep made a top-loading T-86, and it looks fairly similar, so maybe it's possible. Has anyone ever tried it? My truck has a T-9 top-loading crashbox, so it's not set up for a column shift, so I'd kind of like to keep it a floor shift. It sounds like the Jeep shifter would be a good way to go, if it would bolt up.
