Will this Shifter Handle fit my T5 Shifter?

Do da link

http://www.hurst-shifters.com/?wpsc-...natural-finish

My shifter currently is missing the original shifter knob and it has knurled end with a beveled base. The beveled bas has 2 flat sides on it that gives the impression that it can be screwed off - is this the case? I tried it but was afraid to get on it too strong. It didnt budge. I would like to install the shift handle in the link if the provided thread inserts will thread on to my handle.

Looks cool...but also looks uncomfortible...
I like to palm my shifters..
Ya know,lay my hand flat on top of them..
Looks like it comes with plenty of adapters...

The T-5 shifter has a 3/8x16 threaded end. So yes it would work.
As for yours it sounds like you have the metal core of the stock knob still on your shifter. try putting a pipe wrench to the knurled part and try removing it.

This is the kinda whiny crap I would expect to see in the JK forum. We drive rough riding, leaking, gas guzzling CJ's. Rattle can it and throw it in your Jeep.

Also, unless you bend the shifter, the knob will be leaning the wrong way. On that tall shifter, a ball type works best.

Hurst T-handles work great for a T5
