For my shifter knob, I used a mini beer tap pull, the threads were exactly the same, the large ones are too big though.

I put mini shackles on my pull tabs that fold down the rear seats.
I also used two stainless conduit hangers and some insulation foam and made a maglite mount.

If you want 12V power outside the jeep for any reason, I found a weather proof outlet with 17ft of wire, for $6 at our local grocery store. Cheap and easy to do. I'm instaling it in the bed of my truck for camping.

well as you know you cant start a manual tj without the clutch pressed in, there is a simple circuit created when the clutch pressed in so if you look around by the clutch there is a yellow wire and a yellow wire with a red stripe simple splice a switch into those and with that switch off the jeep wont start but with it on it will work normally just hide the switch anywhere you want. my jeep is a 99 with the manual sorry i cant give much info for automatics

For autos, you just need to interrupt the Neutral Safety Switch, which makes sure that the jeep is started in neutral or park

It shouldn't be. All standard beer faucets use a 3/8" thread.

or you could interupt the fuel pump. Thats what I did for one of mine. put a switch on the power wire to the fuel pump. Switch off means no fuel, so it is also a nice safety feature for a fuel kill if I should need it. The other one is actually built into my MSD. If you look in the MSD ignition module book it details how to add a kill switch quite easily on the ignition circuit

Works great, plus it's kinda cool punching in a code to start it, just like in the movies. As for waterproofness, it's been rained on a few times, still working great. It cost about $20 or $30 on ebay. plus the cost of the switch, which was less then $10.
Thanks for the info on this idea. I ordered a digital keypad for 17.99 shipped.
Installed it in the starter circuit and now unless you enter the code the jeep will not start. Best $18 I've spent.

Do you or Firemerc99 have a linc to where you purchased? I can't find anything that inexpensive and must not be using the correct search strings in either Ebay or Google.

Here is the one I used. Asianwolf Smart Digital Keypad Starter Disable Kill
Very easy to install and the key pad is very easy to install. I will try and get a pic of the keypad in a little bit.
