Cool Short throw shifter help

My Ram is a 3.7L 6cyl 6spd. Gets me 27mpgs highway and I want to change out the shifter to a Hurst or another type of short throw shifter but can't find any.. Any ideas?

Did that shorten the throw or just change the look?? My older 94 Dakota went from a 6inch throw to a 3inch throw when I put a Hurst racing shifter in it years ago

IDK how far your throw is but a ratchet shifter doesn't move several inches. It moves one notch. Check them out on YouTube
