Shift Knob

Well, when I bought the Jeep it came with a chrome skull on the 5 spd. and nothing on the 4wd box. Naturally, I went to my retired machinest grandfather and asked him if he could help me out. He drilled me out 4 billiard balls in his shop so they screw straight onto the top. I'm now running around with an 8 and an 9 ball on the shifters. Looks pretty cool and fits perfectly in the hand: Cost - Some extra pool balls, someone's gotta have 'em.

Here's a shot of my Top Flite golf ball shifters. Just drilled a smaller hole in it than the shifter threads. Screwed down tightly and volah! I like the feel too (makes me want to go golfin' everyday)!

If I remember correctly, the TJs you have to pop off the shift pattern logo and under it is the nut that holds it to the shift lever.

I took a universal shift knob and fit a nut inside to thread on. In the past, all the universal shifter knobs I've used have eventually come loose and rattled, but these have been on for 2~ months now and are still holding tight.

Sweet pete. I've been stabbing at the sides of the ball trying to get the "pattern top" out of and she's just not gonna do it cap'n. I have almost destroyed the ball and the cap is still in there! What did you guys use? My girlfriend told me I should put a grenade there, "it would look cool". Oh she's a keeper.
