I stole one just like that from an open Jeep in a parking lot. I only had it a week before it was stolen.

does your shifter have a push button to move into gears?....if so there should be like a allen wrench hole somewhere. Well atleast there was in my other cars.

I'd love to get one of those grenade shifters for my jeep, but I have an automatic. Is there some way you can still switch it out even though it has that little button thing on the side? I know tjwrnglr did with that beer tap handle (niiiiice )

On mine, te ram's head acts as the push button. When shfting all I do is push down on its head and then move the shifter either up or down. That way, I wont accidentally push it into park while i'm doing 70 on the freeway. all I did was hollow out the handle to fit te sifter perfectly. pretty easy to do.

Beat me to it. I new I saw it somewhere else at a hefty price. As a matter a fact; everything in that mag is overpriced. They also use the same chick for every picture. Shes hot but that gets boring after awhile. Now I know how Kidd Rock feels

not cool if it is true.

Some dude stole my 3 day patrol pack out of my jeep when it was parked in behind the armory!!!

Gah, if he would have asked ever so convincingly i would have gave him my sweater, 3 tshirts and a pair of jeans if he needed it that badly. But that pack was just so irreplacable.

Steeling from an open top jeep is not cool

did this quite a while back... drill and taped a hole in the side and used a 5/8x2 1/2 bolt as a sleave...cut the head off the bolt and drilled and tapped the bolt to fit the stock shifter threads. the grenades are hollow so the sleave was used to make it stronger. mixed up some jb weld and used a injector to get it into the bottom hole of the gernade to make sure the sleave would not get loose. waited for it to dry up over night and put it on the jeep. I did use a very clear epoxy to sucure the spoon /pin and ring. the epoxy is not noticeable and the spoon and pin will not move . I have resently removed it and painted the spoon and neck so looks like a live grenade and not the """"hey look at me im a dummy grenade"""". ..





these pics where when i first mounted it ..look better since painted.

Wars may come and go, but my soldiers remain Eternal.

It's nice being just down the road from DPGoffroad.

Now a 99 SAHARICON!!!!

In today's paranoid society, don't be surprised if some old lady (or ultra-liberal who hates Jeepers and just wants to cause trouble for the Jeeper) called the cops after seeing a "grenade" inside a Jeep not realizing it was only a shift knob.
