I have watched multiple GEN3 videos and I never noticed this before until last night. I guess for the GEN3, the Carbon Fiber package no longer includes a carbon fiber shifter. Not sure why Ford took this away. The Carbon Fiber shifter in the GEN2 looked great!

They probably have to use the same one in the other F-150s to ensure it folds down properly. :D

I’m sure the stick on real and fake CF prices will show up in no time. I’ve really never seen a non oem shifter CF or not for an F-150. But I could be wrong and why would there be, when Ford made them.

There seem to be a lot of them out there, this is just one. Not sure I would trust a stick on for the shifter, or any place that's going to get touched and move around a lot.

As for 2021, options aren't available yet since it's early. The folding shifter also could be a problem.

Yes plenty for Gen 2’s. The Gen 3 may pose a problem if nothing comes from Ford. That shifter looks like it will be somewhat involved to swap out as well. It’s also much smaller and it can be hidden. I can see why Ford didn’t bother dressing it up. Would have been nice though.
