    Hello all,

    I have a 2001 F450 4x4 with column shift auto and was wondering if anyone has ever seen any modifications or conversions to a floor shifter that would alow easier shifting from drive to rev for plowing.

    Thanks.

    I'm just used to plowing with a manual and having my controls right on the shifter.
