URD Short Throw Shifter 2005+ 1GR Tacoma 4.0L

URD short throw shifter boasts:

  • 44% shorter throws
  • Improved Gear engagement
  • Installs in about 20 minutes

You wanted this major improvement since the first time you drove the Tacoma. The URD short shifter works on all 2005 and later Tacoma, manual 6-speed transmissions.

A few years ago URD purchased a 2005 Tacoma X-Runner for product development. We love The truck, but we disliked the OEM shifter. We took the shifter assembly out of the truck and immediately saw a problem. There was a clearance issue in the assembly that caused parts inside to bind before the gears were completely engaged. Furthermore, the throw on the six speed Tacoma shifter is long, and it can be tough to shift into some gears. URD decided to provide a solution to address both issues.

We tested other brands of short shifters in our test trucks. Although these other brands have a nice crisp short shift, there is a lot of noise and vibration that is transmitted through the shift lever into the cab.

This is because the other designs replace the entire shift lever. The stock shifter is really two parts bonded together with a rubber-like material. This deadens sound as well as vibration. It was clear that we wanted to retain this very important feature.

Another problem with other designs is an unnecessary complex installation requiring grinding and disassembly of the shifter pivot ball (while fighting a stiff spring in the process). URD's Tacoma short shifter is very simple to install.

This simple approach has an extension that slips over the end of the stock shifter and a spacer plate that easily installs between the transmission and shifter assembly. The whole installation process can be completed in about 20 minutes.

Shifts are short throws; about 44% less. Gear engagement is improved. There is no known downside here. This is the serious improvement that you have wanted since the first time you drove your six speed Tacoma.
