    How many of us have lost the plastic ring that goes around the O/D button on the end of the shifter. I have lost all 3 in our trucks, they just don't stay on when you have a plow controller in you hand and your constantly putting it from D to R.

    Oh, you would know. It's annoying. I hate little things like that.
    NOPE! Mine was gone when I got the truck. I will get one from a junk yard this Spring.

    I have lost two and bought new ones at the dealer. Luckily, they are cheap. This last one I glued in. Still there.

    Mine still there but I don't use it since it is broke to. It is the third one I put in the dam wires are to dam thin that they keep brakeing from shifting all the time. Ford should have left them on the dash.

    1 of mine is gone, 1 is still on there. I had intentions of gluing it back on, but it got lost somewhere. Ironically, It fell off in summer not in winter.

    Truthfully, I do not remember exactly. I do know it was no more than $3.50. My hunch is $3.00? I guess it is pricey for a very small piece of plastic, though!payup:cool:
