QK1127 Dodge NV4500 Shift Tower Kit is an exact fit replacement for Dodge 1998-2002 NV4500 and it will also fit 2003-2005 Dodge NV4500 transmissions. Includes genuine New Venture Shift Tower, metal/rubber Spacer Plate, 4 bolts, 4 bushings, and RTV sealant. 14 mm coarse thread shifter connection. USA made.
Dan the Gear Man® Tech Note 1:
QU10047 Shift Tower will fit all 1998 to 2005 Dodge NV4500 series 5 speed manual transmissions. The exact replacement tower for 2003-05 Ram trucks is no longer available, but you can use this Kit on the 2003-2005 transmissions because the only difference is the threaded stub length on QU10047 1998-2002 tower is longer compared to now discontinued QU10714 2003-2005 tower. Except for the stub length difference the two towers are identical. QK1127 replaces QK1133 Kit which included the now discontinued 2003-2005 short stub shift tower.
Dan the Gear Man® Tech Note 3:
All 1998-2005 Dodge with 14mm coarse thread shift stub and 1995-2000 GM with 16mm fine thread shift stub NV4500 Shift Towers are physically interchangeable on the covers. In 2001 GM introduced the GMT 800 2500HD and 3500HD Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra trucks. Vehicle Identification Number based (VIN) GM electronic parts books show two shift covers and towers for 2001-2002. The difference is the height of the cover shift tower base and length of the shift tower stub. The early cover as used for year 2000 and prior plus some 2001-2002 has a shift tower base that is about 3/4" high and it uses a short shift stub. The 2001 and later cover has a base that is approximately 1" high, accepts towers with a longer stub, and it was used on all the 2003-2007 Silverado and Sierra trucks. The Dodge and early GM towers are not interchangeable with late GM shift towers.
