I've been looking at getting a short shifter for my '17. I've seen that both the Boomba and Steeda short shifter are favorites in here. When I was looking at instructional videos on their installations I saw some differences. Maybe I don't understand, but why are the installations so different? I saw that you need to trim part of the base for the Steeda and you remove the entire shifter assembly to install the Boomba.

Installation guides below:

Great info in there. Both of those units will do great, my Boomba was absolutely incredible and easy to install/uninstall. The steeda will be no different most likely on the topic of installation.

One thing to consider with the Steeda is that you thread the screws in from the bottom (not sure if this is the case with the Boomba). It can be a really big PITA due to lack of space. I have it in mine and the shifter feels great though, much improved over stock.
