Thanks for the comments/suggestions guys. I know, it's something about the color that makes that shifter look like the stick shift in a 1992 Ford F-150
I need a short shifter bad.
To install it, I ended up cutting off the top half of the stock boot (it's hard to bring yourself to do), and inserted that base in the elastic bottom of the momo boot. Actually worked out quite nice. Installing the boot and knob is a whole other matter, definately not as fun, but once you do it once it isn't a big problem.
