      Review & Installation Video

      Hey I’m Justin with, and this is my breakdown of the B&M hammer console ratchet shifter, fitting all 94-04 automatic Mustangs. Hot rodders have been looking to B&M for well over 50 years, for all of their performance shifting needs, and their presence is still just as strong in today’s muscle car world. Alright, we know the stock shifter can handle the daily driver duties just fine, but when you start getting serious about your street and strip performance, that stock shifter can quickly become a liability. You can miss shifts, get hung up between gears, and in some very rare, very extreme cases, even shift into neutral or reverse which obviously is never a good thing. When installed the B&M allows you to manually shift the forward gears of your Mustang, by either ratcheting up or down on the lever, or on the other hand you can just leave the shifter in drive and cruise around like you would using the factory shifter, it’s the best of both worlds. Thanks to the reverse lockout feature, you can easily bang those gears without having to worry about accidentally shifting into reverse. Taking a closer look at everything you receive from B&M, you can see this is a total package, of course they include the shifter mechanism itself but they also include a factory like shifter bezel, lighted gear indicator, leather shift boot, and a B&M T handle shift knob. This shifter is both NHRA and IHRA certified, making it an excellent choice for any street or strip Mustang. The hammer is a no modification needed bolt on for the AOD trans found in all 94-04 automatic Mustangs. You will need to do some work both inside and underneath the car, so make sure you have your jack stands or ramps ready before you get started. In addition you will need to wire in the overdrive button and LED illumination into your factory wiring, so just make sure you have a soldering iron ready. When it’s all said and done, you should be wrapped up in about 2 hours from start to finish. Perhaps one of the best features about this shifter that you won’t find in the product description, is that a majority of our customer reviews say the B&M ratchet shifter just makes the car more fun to drive, well there’s really only one way to find out, so with the shifter installed let’s grab our GT and put it to the test. Alright so we’re out in the 2000 GT, we’ve got the B&M ratchet shifter installed, and my first impression looks wise is it looks killer I mean it adds a little bit of that race car flavor to the interior, but we want to see how this thing performs. Right now we have it in drive, and we’re just kind of cruising around like you would in a normal automatic car, but what’s a ratchet shifter without actually shifting, so with that said, we’re coming up to a stop sign here, we’ll ratchet it on down into first. Alright, now we’ve got the car in first, we’ll pull out here from a stop and see if this thing shifts as it should. Hammer on, second, third, there you go, I mean it does kind of make driving an automatic fun in a way, I mean you’re shifting the car, again it’s not exactly like a manual car, you’re obviously not working the clutch but for the most part, it gives you something to do. Overall, total package, it looks great, performs as it should, and it’s a great value, so be sure to check out the B&M ratchet shifter for your 94-04 Mustang, right here at

      Direct Fit Installation. The B&M Hammer Console Ratchet Shifter was designed to fit the 1987-1993 Mustang's center console with no modifications required to the factory AOD transmission. And to further simplify the installation this ratchet shifter includes the neutral safety switch, backup light switch, lighted gear indicator, leather shift boot and polished aluminum T-Handle.

        Great Shifter

        Let me start by saying the only reason I have this four stars is cause the instructions could be a lot more detailed. The shifter performs really good a must needed upgrade from stock. The main thing you need to do is make sure your vehicle is in neutral before you start removing old shifter and cable this Will save you a lot of headache. Then install new shifter make sure it is in neutral also the connect the cable and take out all slack and you are good to go.

        B M shifter

        Had to do quite a bit of fabrication to make that work. That was not a plug-in play for sure.

        Easy, easy install

        Took a little getting used to, but once I got it Install was pretty simple,which is fortunate for me since the instructions were lost due to my box being destroyed during delivery. That being said adjusting linkage was a it on the first try. Love this shifter.

      Second gear? Hi, so will this shifter let me hang in 2nd gear a long as I want on a '91 Mustang without doing the 1-D-1 shufffle? If this shifter actually gives me my 2nd gear back on my AOD that would be pretty amazing!? Thanks!

      • Unfortunately for the AOD guys you still have to do the 1-D-1 Shuffle. However, this shifter makes it much easier.

      B&M Shifter I have been looking at these shifters for some time, my question is do they work just like the stock shifter, meaning do you just pull it down to drive or do you have to racket it to get into drive? Then if you want to race your stang you can start out in low by racketing it down? Then racket up for 2nd & 3th and then drive? Do you still have to drop it back down after shifting into second to keep it in second? Thanks, MRGH 2 answers
