06 Wrangler Automatic - Can you replace the shift knob?

I know you change the knob for manuals but how about automatics? I hate the T-Bar shift knob that I currently have. Any ideas or thoughts?

I'll be going with a B&M shifter kit sometime this year, I hate the looks of my auto shifter too... especially after all the work I put into converting from the 5-speed to the automatic, I don't want it looking so stock.

i dont think so. you'd need to find a way to actuate the release button. now an auto shifter like the B&M jerry mentioned would probably work with some fabing, but as for just replacing the knob....probably not.

By the time I added everything up for the Gennie shifter including the adapter kit for Chrysler, knob, and the PRNDL indicator kit, it's VERY expensive compared to the B&M or Hurst automatic shifter kits. Based on price alone I'll stick with the very cool looking B&M shifter.

Of those at http://www.bmracing.com/performance-automatic-shifters I will probably go with the Megashifter at the top of the page. It can be found on Internet for $189 or so.
