This may sound silly, but what is this called!?!?

I have an automatic '94 YJ. Looking to get a new piece for the steering wheel but I can't figure out what it is called! It is the piece above the steering wheel that tells you what gear you are in. (Park R N D 2 1). The piece is all scratched so I want to buy a new one. Searched every amalgamation of gear shifter box steering etc I could! Thanks!

@cracked do you think something like that would go in my 94? (Hate when they say until 93!)

honestly, I don't know if it would fit on a '94 or not as I don't have that much experience with auto transmissions in YJ's

since that part seems pretty expensive for what it is can you possibly refurb the one you already have?

if not...supposedly the YJ's use the same steering column as the Chevy S-10's....I would take the part to my local Chevrolet dealer and see if the parts counter person can match it up to something still available

You might check some of the pick and pulls. I've found interior parts from XJ's that work fine in my YJ.

YJGirl88, save the pic for reference and check the classifieds. Sure somebody's got one lay'n around.

I don't think that the shift indicator will work out of a XJ. XJ shift indicator is located in front of the center console and is flush with the dash around it for the most part. YJ is a column shift and it stands alone. The best bet would get the correct one for a YJ

They share many part with the S10. Yesterday I was having trouble with the headlight switch. I was going to replace it and during my search, I found a switch from a S10 is identical. I was able to get mine working with a good cleaning once I had it out.

I sure wish my YJ was in good enough shape I could worry about things like replacing scratched interior components...
