So i've been wanting a short throw for a while and i think its about that time now. I'm trying to find out who makes the best one for my 04 xt. Let me know what you all think.

Your best bang for the buck with be the Kartboy short shifter, and Tom is actually a sponsor here.
If you just want a shorter throw, you'll only need the shifter itself. If you'd like to firm things up a bit, get the front and rear shifter bushings while you're at it. Since you've got a MY04 the rear shifter bushing will work on yours, unlike on the MY06-08's where it doesn't fit properly.
If you'd like to make your shifter feel AMAZING... get the Subaru Group N 5-speed transmission mount. It'll be like night and day difference in the shifter feel, but won't be very amateur friendly with the shifts.

I have a Cobb and love it. Kartboy has some quality shifters too (less expensive too!) and Tom's a good guy. I'd probably get a Kartboy if I had to do it over again.
