I've only taken mine off to get the center console out. I replaced it with the same factory shift handle. I don't know how an aftermarket handle would be integrated with it. I'd imagine it'd be pretty similar. I just don't know how it would connect. Ours has a couple slots in it so it only fits one way then it clips on when you push down on it. If you're afraid of breaking yours, practice in a junk yard first. That's what I did. I went to a ZJ they just got in and pulled like hell on the handle. It works best if the Jeep is in 1 or 2. Having it in park will make it damn near impossible to get it off. Watch your face while you're pulling it because when it breaks free, it breaks free. I punched the roof of the ZJ in the junk yard when I tried it.

Just be careful you don't break your wind shield pulling it off. I read a post where that happened to somebody.

5 days of cleaning and polishing my Niner of a fun get together car show that the local 4x4 club was part of and my jeep was about avenger in cleanliness compared to theirs.
What it was lacking compared to theirs where nice LED lights, LED light bar, and gadgets inside.
Well I guess it's time to take it out and get it dirty again.



One of the members has a Niner with 70,000 miles on it. It was headed to the junkyard and he got it for free from a friend. He planed on parting it out but it has just sat there for years, I'm going to check it out.

Only those who will risk going too far
can possibly find out how far one can go.

Ripped my guard off the mounts nose diving into a puddle



Cameleer it looks like you have the same guard as me. When you get a chance do you think you could take a photo of the mounts for yours cause I'm not sure of the brand of mine but I wanna order new mounts. If you have the same guard you could tell me the brand so I could try to find new mounts. Thanks man

Here's one of the mounts, I welded in the small extra support piece going up from between the 2 bold holes. A little modification was also done here to angle the grille guard further away from the hood and grille. You can also see how the tow hook bracket bolts into it making it stronger.



There's also 2 pieces that go under the grille and bolts down behind it. Sorry you can't seem them here.
