How To Get Shifter Knob Off WJ?

Trying to get the shifter knob off my 99 WJ but can't find any info on it. I read you just pull straight up but I have tried a bit and it doesn't budge. I don't want to hurt the OD switch and wiring under there either.

Also, does the transfer case knob just pull off?

I just need to change a cracked gear position indicator bezel.

I don't know about the shift knob but yes, the t-case knob just pulls up. Put the shifter and t-case in the lowest position as the angle will help you pull it off. Just don't break your windshield.

Get to deep in some mud/water? That is why I stay away from that stuff if possible.

Stupid me, it was a "lets just put the front wheels in and see how deep this mud/water hole is". Well it was so deep I could back out even with the rear tires getting traction. So I still have no rear tow points yet. I had to go threw the hole and up a big cliff with mu winch and another Jeep hooked on to keep me heading in the right direction. Stupid me will get a hitch on there now

It pulls straight up, but it puts up a big fight. I spent quite a bit of time trying to get it out on the parts vehicle I got my shift bezel from, and did not find a graceful way of doing this.

Disconnect your OD switch and give it as much slack as you can, then pull as hard as you can on the shift knob. Gotta give it hell. I busted my knuckles on the sunroof and was surprised I did not crack it..

If it aint broke, fix it till it is.

All that stuff done to your rig and no rear recovery, that is rough lesson learned.

Maybe tape a pillow to the ceiling.

The more I look at junk yards they won't just sell me the labeled bezel anyways so when I replace it will be the whole shifter assembly I guess.
