It's not the gates that are different between the years (well maybe a little). What's different are the shifter bars. If you get a TRD SS you'll notice the shifter bar bends towards the e-brake. If you look at an 02+ shifter you'll see the shifter bar bends towards the passenger side. Along with the bar the mechanism (plastic housing is a little different to work with the gates). That is why you have to take out the shifter bar from TRD SS assmebly and put it in your 02+ shifter assembly and then put in your car.RJAY said:Which ss works with the 02 gates?
I solved this solution by rotating the TRD SS about 180degree.gnes100 reverse is a little close to the e brake though ..now ... so it will end up bangin on it if u push it to hard but its no real big deal ..
