What kind of shifter Knob do you have?

I was looking to get a new shifter knob and I couldn't decide what to get so I won't to see your cool shifter knobs.

I've got some cheapo generic Walnut balls for both shifters to match my wood steering wheel. I'll eventually upgrade to some nicely shaped wooden knobs, but I have oil and electrical issues to work on first!

I use a knock off of the Hurst/ BM t-handle. Love it but it is aluminum and in the winter it get real cold.

I had a Smith & Wesson pistol grip shift knob that I bought from Auto Zone. It looked cool, but would dig into the side of my leg when shifting. I now have an aluminum knob I purchased from 4wd Parts.
Btw, once I get Project 23 back from the paint shop, I will start going through my parts and the S&W knob will probably be listed in the free section.

When I still had the single stick I had an old WWII pineapple grenade for a shift knob on the t-case. The bottom was drilled out so I welded a nut in.

Matching hurst T-handle for both shifters. Really like how they fit in the hand and match the other billet aluminum inside.

The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left .

Not to derail the thread but did project 23 ever get his rims in?

Tapped a pineapple gernade from the surplus store. Clear coated it to keep the rust down. Really comfortable too.
