What are we talking about here? A trail rig, drag/street car/truck or cruiser?

Cruiser, on the floor or column.
Drag/street or trailrig, beside my seat up where it is very easy to get to (to the point my hand would be able to rest comfortably on the handle the entire day.)

Truck would be an 84 k10. Bench seat. I like the floor mount idea but what to do with the column? take the lever off and? Truck will be a road/work/trail truck. Not a daily driver but will be driven on the street.

For a work truck, keep it on the column so that it's one less thing in the way if you have the front seat full.

Sounds like you should leave it on the column.

I had a column shifter in a rig and when it would flex it would pull the thing out of gear and into reverse. I hated it. Even if you don't mount it on the floor, buy a cable type shifter like a star shifter from B&M and you can mount it anywhere that is comfortable to you.
No matter the body and frame will flex unless you have a roll cage tied into the frame.
Especially in a K10 truck, Those frames twist. Just pull the pin out of the shifter on the column. The try to make the column shifter rotating part stay in park. If not you will accidentally put in it drive and it will not start. I've done that before to. I took some heavy duty black tape and put a wide strip around the column so it didn't move. Redneck I know but it worked.

If you do put in a floor shifter, Grind the nub off the column you can stuff the hole with a small piece of wood fallowed buy some body filler sand and paint after that. My 66 wagon was done that way nad I didn't make it so the column wouldn't move I like it that way I can leave the key in it. When you get out just turn the column a bit and you have an instant theft deterrent.
