I actually like that! I was never a fan of the OEM shifter for the automatics, but I ended up with a 5sp and happy.

i wonder if this is do-able on a 06 automatic?? where did you get your shifter from?
I ordered a Ford Flex shifter. (Don't have the part number handy right now; it's approx. $12.) I also removed my O/D button and installed it in the new shifter, because the wiring/connector is different.

About the 06 shifter I am not sure, as it is even wider than the 2010 T-style shifter. The shifter housing is most likely identical (?).

I would say...2; meaning not hard at all. All panels simply pop off.
There are only three challenges really:
- Pushing down the chrome sproud (which is necessary to reveal the screws). It is snapped onto the shift knob and VERY hard to get off.
- Plugging in the O/D wire is difficult 'cause the connector is deep inside the shifter housing.
- The opening in the black sliding plastic part is too small for the sproud of the new shifter. You need to carve it out with an X-acto knife.

The shift knob itself is a direct fit, with the exception of the electrical connector. I simply removed the O/D button from the old knob and switched it with the button in the new knob.

... You guys let me know what you think. I am really happy with the result, looks and feels way better.
I think it looks great. The important thing is you're happy with it. I think the mods that you come up with on your own are the most rewarding.
