Shifter interchangeability early/late?

So I was doing a search and didn't find much on this matter just the bezel and other tidbits.
But can you direct swap a late model aw4 shift lever that is inside over to a early model? With my 91' I'm seeing how the straight shift lever can cause my knuckle to hit the center console but in my 97' the shift lever is curved and a bit easier to use. If it isn't direct swap what would be needed to swap it over? Might as well fill my curiosity if I ever chooses to swap it.

Re: Shifter interchangeability early/late?

Auto shifter is plug n pray. The bezel/gear indicator might not be correct, if just swapping the shifter.
Time for a 97+ center console swap..
