Almost annoying enough to upgrade to a '16, but if that shifter swap became an option for under $2K, I'd sign up immediately.
Still think in the end that the NTSB will make Jeep change the shifter. Time will tell.

Re: New '16 shifter - fit in a '14?

I would love to see a video of someone using this shifter rocking themselves out of mud, snow or rocks after getting stuck.
Makes me wonder if they ever tested these things in any adverse conditions or on any trails.

Unfortunately I doubt Jeep will be forced to do anything.

Re: New '16 shifter - fit in a '14?

Here is a 2016 complete console and shifter on eBay. Maybe someone can talk the seller into making a listing for just the console instead of with the SRT seats as well.
Actually a damn good deal for near new 2016 SRT seats. Would be an awesome upgrade.

I literally just want the shift knob if someone buys it hahaha

I don't mind the seats either though.

Re: New '16 shifter - fit in a '14?

"if they look at their cluster while moving their shifter"

How do you back up a trailer with this shifter??

You need to look backwards and at the same time watch the dash?? Lets say you are at a boat ramp, you are twisted in your seat watching backwards and making sure your are lined up right, but your not. Now shift into drive to go forward, now shift into reverse, oh you got it wrong , do it again, again, OH! its not in reverse, better check the dash to see what gear you in and on and on, SPUPID SHIFTER !!!! Now try to back up using a normal shifter, - easy the way it should be.

It easier to use a manual transmission than the the GC arrangement

If they don't get that, then these folks deserve to count air particles in the dark.

I don't follow your logic. What difference does having a trailer attached have to do with the style shifter? Who says you must be looking backwards when you put it in reverse? Now that I think of it, I always engage reverse before looking backwards, so quickly checking the dash or the shifter is perfectly doable. I'm not saying the '14/'15 shifter is perfect, but I don't follow your argument. If given the option to change to the 2016 shifter would I? Maybe, but I can't say I have had any issues with my 2015 shifter either.

Re: New '16 shifter - fit in a '14?

Some of these comments or complaints are comical. I've had to rock it back and forth to get over a couple of feet of snow from a snow plow. No problems. I also drove it with a trailer almost everyday for 1-1/2 years. I've also had zero issues with shifting it into reverse and backing up. I don't think I ever looked backwards while backing up. I have a camera and two mirrors. The shifter sucks, but it is not that hard to learn. However it does not always go into park. I also think it has something to do with when you apply your foot in the brake in coorelation with pressing the button and the amount of pressure. It seams to have its own mind of whether it once in a while just want to deny you of park. I almost always use my E brake though. Just a habit from having the trailer

Re: New '16 shifter - fit in a '14?

I guess if you can't understand logic, go hookup a trailer and then try to back it up any distance accurately, BUT DONT LOOK AT THE DASH, then tell me how far you get/

The difference might be that when we are maneuvering a trailer, there is often the need to move from forward to reverse multiple times in small increments. Many folks tend to do that without changing that they are looking at the trailer through the mirrors (and/or backup cam when in reverse) so "feeling into the gear" is often the expectation. That's a bit tough with the MY14-15 shifter if I'm understanding things correctly. (I've never driven a MY14/15) With the shifter on my MY12, "feeling the gear" is easy because of the way the shifter is constructed physically. I believe that MY16+ is similar in that respect.
