Now I'm on the fence about this.

It could be normal operation but the dodge engineers solved the shaking by using the stock 3rd gear piece. That's entirely possible. They added friction modifier to the ATF+4 to stop a noise that could possibly displease customers. It could just be one of those things. I've seen many trucks/vans with shaky gears, and our transmission is out of a van ... I would feel more comfortable about this piece if pwerks could explain why it shakes. This could even be a question for Dr. Who. Why does the transmission pop out in the first place? I think it's related to the shift forks personally.

A ton of people have had success with this piece and i've never read of a transmission failure caused by the extender..

I installed the extender in my transmission when i first bought mine, because it would pop out of third gear(no matter what),at the same time i put in a billet selector ,bugger bushings and a sts. i dont have a vibration in 3rd gear or any gear. transmission shifts smooth with no problems at all.

Yeah, I was wondering if the booger bushings would absorb the vibrations. Might get them.

I don't really want to wrench anymore. I'd rather detail.

Well I already have boogers, so I guess I'll just go ahead and get the extender.

i dont know that the booger bushing would absorb any more vibration then the stockers.
they may transmit more since they are solid,but if your stockers are destroyed thay may be hindering gear engaugement?

I don't think worn shifter bushings would make the trans pop out of 3rd gear.

Worn bushings could indeed cause gear pop out.. Anything that causes the gear to NOT fully engage will cause gear pop out. The syncro ring slides over the gear and locks in place via three roller bearings and grooves inside the outer ring of the syncro. If the ring does not fully engage the gear, the ring will pop back into the 'neutral' location. This can also cause the gear to grind with the syncro. If you ever get the opportunity to take apart a syncro, you'll know exactly what i'm talking about.

Anything that prevents the syncro from fully engaging the gear will cause it to pop out. This could be a long 3rd gear selector, bad casting of the transmission housing, sifter plate misalignment, worn bushings, worn syncro/gears, bad linkage or bad shift fork.

I think I'm ordering my parts tonight, shift selector, extender and maybe a 3/4 synchro.

i dont have any problems with my 3rd gear as it was fixed by orginial owner like 10,000miles ago but should would it be a good idea to get the extender or is it just for people having problems with there 3rd gear. i no the 3rd gear is infamous for messing up. would this save my 3rd gear before it messes up down the road?
